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.

Lincoln Grant Scholar House

Lincoln Grant Scholar House is an innovative model for single parents who are full time college students. Home to 45-families, the Scholar House is conveniently located three-blocks from Gateway Community and Technical College’s Urban Campus with other schools in close proximity or available via public transportation include Cincinnati State, University of Cincinnati, Xavier University, Northern Kentucky University, and Thomas More College.  

Residents receive counseling and support while fulfilling academic or vocational training coursework as full-time students. They are also encouraged to access the resources that are available at the college or university they are attending, such as advising, on-campus interviews, writing center help, remedial courses, and student life events and activities. By providing affordable, safe, and decent housing, on-site case management, an Academic Service Center, children’s library, and computer lab, the Scholar House experience enables residents – many of them first generation college students – to find success in their quest for self-reliance.

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.

Lincoln Grant Scholar House is managed by Northern Kentucky Community Action Commision.
