Responding to COVID-19

Urge Congress to Pass COVID Relief & Sample Letter to Public Health re: Vaccine Distribution

Vaccine Distribution Begins in Minnesota

Many HRAs have buildings whose residents are elderly or have underlying health conditions making them at high risk of adverse effects of COVID19.  Some housing authorities have coordinated with their local public health departments to prioritize these residents when vaccine distribution begins. 

View the sample letter below from the Minneapolis and St Paul PHAs regarding vaccine distribution strategies. We urge you to consider contacting your local public health department to discuss distribution options and how your residents may be considered a priority in your community.

Urge Congress to Pass the COVID Relief Bill & Keep Government Open

Send a letter each day until it passes!

Nearly nine months after the passage of the CARES Act, significant progress is finally being made on an end of the year legislative package that includes COVID-19 rental assistance and FY21 HUD funding. While talks continue, a final agreement remains elusive.   The bill includes: 

  • $25 billion in rental assistance funding
  • an extension of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) eviction moratorium. 
  • HUD funding for FY2021 element are not yet public

Congress needs to hear from housing advocates every day until they pass the bill.  Use NAHRO’s Advocacy website to send a letter – its easy and takes just a few minutes.  Plan to send a letter each day until they pass funding.
