Service Modifications Directions
The Housing Authority of the City of Long Beach is implementing the following temporary measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. These measures will stay in place until further guidelines are released.
Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, our agency lobby will be closed to the public and all non-urgent, non-emergency work orders will be suspended. Effective Monday August 3, 2020 the HACLB will perform virtual inspections for Biennial and Special Inspections. Initial Inspections will continue to be performed on-site and the inspector will meet the landlord at the property. Virtual inspections will allow the agency to conduct inspections while complying with social distancing orders.
We take our obligation of service to our community, employees, and partners seriously; therefore, we feel that this is a necessary step to minimize community gatherings and increase personal distancing to avoid the spread of COVID-19. We apologize for any inconvenience, and we thank you for your patience during this time.
Our staff will be available by phone and email. Because we anticipate a higher than normal call volume, we respectfully ask for your patience. You have our commitment to address your concerns as soon as possible. You may also call (562) 570-6985 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMPORTANT NOTICE – PLEASE READ
FOR NEW APPLICANTS SELECTED FROM THE WAITING LIST AND NOT LEASED UP
We regret to inform you that we have exhausted our funds for new applicants and are currently assisting the maximum number of families our current funding can support. All Request for Tenancy Approvals, (RFTA's) that have been submitted prior to August 23, 2019 will be honored as long as the unit passes inspection and the family takes possession. If the unit does not pass inspection, the paperwork will be void and the applicant will be returned to the waiting list.
All applicants will be placed back on the waiting list with their original application date and time. As funding becomes available, you will be contacted to update your file or continue with the eligibility process. All current vouchers and RFTA's are void. Please continue to report all changes online to the Housing Authority of the City of Long Beach.
We appreciate your patience at this time.
