Duluth HRA’s COVID-19 Response

The HRA’s central office in King Manor will be closed to the public beginning Wednesday, March 18

We will continue to take applications.  Applications for public housing and Section 8 are available online, and will be available by mail or can be picked up outside the Central Office (use the 2nd Street entrance and follow the directions on signage).  Completed applications can be either mailed in or dropped off in the secure mail slot on the first floor of King Manor.

Staff will continue to process applications and staff will be working with residents to ensure continued leasing, maintenance, and appeals. 

Maintenance and Inspection staff will be asking if anyone in the household is sick before entering a unit.  Any inspections and non-emergency repairs will be rescheduled if there is an ill person in the unit.

We will be utilizing technology including conference calling, video conferencing, email, and phone interviews to continue serving our residents and move applicants into housing from our waiting lists.
