Wilson Housing Authority Statement on Coronavirus
Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19, The Wilson Housing Authority is following the recommendations of the State of North Carolina and has taken additional precautionary safety measures by closing all of its offices to the public until further notice. WHA staff are working staggered office hours to reduce the number of people in the office at any one time, but they can be reached by phone or email.
The main phone number for the WHA’s office is 252-291-2245.
The links above outline COVID-19 policies approved by HUD for public housing and Housing Choice Voucher programs. The Wilson Housing Authority is following all HUD policies regarding the payment of rent and the temporary suspension of evictions due to non-payment of rent during the COVID-19 crisis. The HUD approved COVID-19 waivers can be implemented by the Wilson Housing Authority. We will implement these waivers as needed to assist our residents.
For our residents:
If you have questions or concerns pertaining to your tenancy or housing assistance please contact your property manager/specialist or case worker by phone or email. The office staff will mail notices requesting any missing documentation.
