PHADA continues to monitor the rapidly changing situation related to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). We understand that concerns for health, safety, and the impact on housing authorities’ staff and residents across the US, among a myriad of regulatory and funding issues, are affecting our members.
As communities across the country respond to COVID-19, public housing agencies also seek to mitigate risk to their client households and employees from the spread of the disease. HAs are conducting emergency planning to counter the global pandemic and PHADA aims to support members in these endeavors. To this point, PHADA is developing a resource library (www.phada.org/COVID19) to include information from public health experts, HUD, and other partners to ensure HAs are informed of recommended practices.
If your agency has completed its planning, we are requesting you share any documents with PHADA so that we can make them available to your colleagues in the industry. If you are willing to participate in this effort, please send them to our Director of Communications, Blake Stenning at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
