Coronavirus Update

 

Posted: 1/11/2021

Effective 1/11/2020, the Augusta Housing Authority will move to complete urgent and emergency work orders only (see definitions below)
when it comes to terms of working inside an occupied unit. All work orders in exterior/grounds/common areas will continue as normal.


Emergency Work Orders:
An Emergency issue is one that, if not dealt with promptly, could cause injury, loss of life, threaten health, or cause serious property damage.
Examples of such issues are: Leaking or broken gas lines, fires, loss of all power, broken water lines, exposed electrical lines, loose ceilings, no heat
(when the outdoor temperature is below 40-degrees F), no air conditioning (in elderly housing when the outdoor temperature exceeds 80-degrees F),
elderly lockouts, broken exterior door locks, or other conditions that might cause harm to the resident or others or damage to property.
Emergency work will be abated immediately or, if that’s not possible, within 24-hours.

Urgent Work Orders:
An Urgent issue is one that would create a major inconvenience for residents, but which is not life-threatening and will not cause serious property damage.
Examples of such issues are: Sink or toilet stoppage, family lockouts, no hot water, or a refrigerator not cooling. Urgent work will be completed within 48-hours.

Posted 9/14/2021

In the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision that invalidated the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) eviction moratorium, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is using every tool at our disposal to help safeguard the millions of the nation’s individuals and families now in danger of losing their homes.
Our programs and resources protect HUD-assisted households from eviction and should be sought out by all Americans who are seeking assistance in avoiding eviction, relocating to new homes in the event an eviction moves forward, and fighting unfair evictions.
