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.

WH MainStrasse Apartments

831 Bakewell Street, Covington, Kentucky 41011

WH MainStrasse Apartments is one of 18 properties in the Cincinnati area acquired by POAH from The Model Group in May 2018.  This acquisition preserved 1,100 rental apartments at a time when the neighborhood was seeing significant investments in infrastructure, new public transportation options, and an expansion of the district’s art and dining scene. This ensured the units would remain affordable long-term and allow residents of all income levels to participate in the economic renaissance of the neighborhood. POAH Communities will also implement a Community Impact program across the portfolio to help residents succeed, with outcome-driven resident services that foster financial stability, health and education.


Home to 41 low- and moderate-income families, MainStrasse consists of eight scattered-site properties in Covington, Kentucky.

  • Scattered Sites
  • Water and Sewer utilities included in rent

  • Heat utility included in rent
  • Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

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.

WH MainStrasse Apartments is managed by Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH).
