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.

Plaza Townhomes

5802 N Michigan Ave, Portland, Oregon 97217

The Plaza Townhomes community is home to 68 families in the north side of Portland, Ore. Though historically a blue-collar neighborhood, the community around Michigan Avenue has been gentrifying rapidly, and many hardworking residents have been priced out of their homes. Like much of the city, the residents of Plaza Townhomes have lived in fear of rent increases that, if dictated by the open market, would be unaffordable. However, Community Preservation Partners (CPP) stepped in and rehabilitated the community through an agreement that will improve the property and keep rents affordable for 30 more years.
