Despite its offices being closed for more than a month under Gov. Brian Kemp’s shelter-in-place order, the largest housing authority in the state of Georgia is still working to provide resources during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Senior leaders for Atlanta Housing say the agency, which provides affordable housing resources to more than 50,000 people in the Atlanta metro area, has made temporary operational changes to better serve its residents and Housing Choice Voucher recipients.
The agency’s staff is currently working remotely and is conducting over-the-phone appointments and virtual inspections.
Dee Dee Beaty, senior vice president of Real Estate Asset Management for Atlanta Housing, and Tracy Jones, senior vice president of the Housing Choice Voucher Program for Atlanta Housing, recently joined “Closer Look” to share how their agency is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
They also discussed rent relief and a variety of resources that are available for residents, seniors and families in need.
