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.

The Laredo Housing Authority is participating in HUD-RAD, and, via it’s subsidiary the Laredo Housing Facilities Corporation, is converting the Russell Terrace development into a RAD project. All 200 units will eventually move from Public Housing based assistance to Project Based Voucher assistance. In the process, 132 units will be demolished and rebuilt with modern amenities. Tenants who resided there before the conversion process will have the “Right to Return” after the demolition and rebuilding has been completed.
