Affordable Housing Online is monitoring the federal government's response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. As of March 13, 2020, Public Housing Agencies across the nation are closing their doors to the public. Most offices are still running and will communicate by phone, email, or mail. Some offices have drop boxes installed outside, so documents can still be hand-delivered. Visit the housing authority's website for the latest on its current operations, if one is available. If there is no information online, contact the housing authority directly. Due to a high volume of calls and modified office hours in most areas, expect a long wait time (days or weeks) for a response. To find your local PHA's contact info, browse by state here.

Public Housing Agencies By State

Public Housing Agencies, commonly referred to as Housing Authorities and abbreviated as PHAs, are federally funded and regulated organizations tasked with developing long-term, sustainable housing strategies for the communities they serve.

Housing authorities offer many services for those within their jurisdiction, notably the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher and Public Housing programs. Each housing authority participates in a different array of programs to best meet the needs of their community.
