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.

An extensive list of coronavirus resources for low-income households can be found here.

Mary's House

401 Anacostia Road Southeast, Washington, District Of Columbia 20019

Mary’s House for Older Adults is a nonprofit organization that develops brick and mortar housing targeting the cultural and relational needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/same gender loving (LGBTQ/SGL) elders. Our first communal living home will be built in Washington, DC. Our vision is to build a Mary’s House in every ward in the District of Columbia as well as every state and territory in the Union. We know that there is not enough affordable and culturally competent housing available to older adults, especially for LGBTQ/SGL people. Also, we educate on and advocate for issues germane to elders, emphasizing that the lack of housing is a public health issue.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
