HOUSING AUTHORITY TAKING STEPS TO LIMIT SPREAD OF COVID-19 DURING OMICRON SURGE

Due to the rapid recent increase in COVID case numbers locally, we are implementing new protocols effective Tuesday, January 11, 2022, to help reduce the spread of the virus. These protocols will remain in effect until Monday, January 31, 2022.

Starting Tuesday, January 11, all Wilson Housing Authority offices will be closed to the public. The front desk of the administrative office on 301 Nash Street E will be staffed from 8 a.m. until noon. Monday through Thursday to take phone calls. Administrative and Housing Choice Voucher staff will alternate working from the office and home and will respond to inquiries by email and phone.

The housing authority’s three public housing offices will be staffed from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday. Staff will be able to take phone calls and emails but will not be able to meet face-to-face with residents while we are following these stricter protocols.

During this period, housing authority maintenance workers will only respond to emergency work orders. Non-emergency work will be rescheduled. Maintenance can be reached at its regular phone numbers.

Wilson Housing Authority Waiting Lists for all programs are closed

Because of the size of the waiting lists for all of the Wilson Housing Authority’s housing programs, we currently are not taking any applications for either our public housing or housing choice voucher programs. Currently, a date for when those waiting lists will reopen has not been set. When that happens, we will announce that information across a variety of platforms.
