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.

Dexter Manor

100 Broad St, Providence, Rhode Island 02903

Dexter Manor I, built in 1962, is a 10-story elderly/disabled high-rise building located on the edge of the city’s Downtown neighborhood. In 1984 a new wing was added to the building containing an additional 91 units of elderly/disabled housing and the PHA’s Administrative Offices. Although the newer wing is technically a separate development named Dexter Manor II, the two are usually referred to collectively as Dexter Manor.

The first two floors of Dexter Manor II house the Offices of the Executive Director and the Departments of Property Management, Leased Housing, Finance, and Strategy and Development. The Resident Services and Property Management office serving residents of the building is located in Dexter I. In addition to these offices, Dexter Manor has a community room, computer lab, and laundry room for residents.
