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.

People are drawn to Portland, Maine, and there is little question as to why. Ranked number four of America's 10 perfect places to live, Portland has it all, surrounded by rugged, rocky coast to the north, and white sandy beaches to the south. Portland offers all the amenities of the big city, including the arts district -- home to several galleries and museums including the Portland Museum of Art, waterfront views, museums, parks, elegant hotels and diverse shopping opportunities. Ferry docks provide cruises to Casco Bay's hundreds of islands, as well as whale watches and relaxing dinner cruises.

For the athlete or nature buff, there is certainly no shortage of outdoor activities. This part of Maine offers plenty of woods for strolling, rivers for canoeing and mountains for skiing. There's also this little thing called the Atlantic Ocean, which is perfect for fishing! The combination of beautiful rocky Maine coastline, hundreds of islands and countless sand and mud flats makes Casco Bay the ideal environment for striped bass, mackerel and blue fish. For the adventurer, going just a few miles offshore you can fish for cod and haddock, as well as several kinds of tuna.
