From the City of Shoreline, WA's press release:
From the Yakima Herald:
In 2016, when interested parties first floated the idea of a veterans housing project at the old Marine Corps Reserve armory in Yakima, they knew it would take years. But they also were confident that time and toil spent on the project would pay off. Veterans were worth the effort.
From CBS 13 Baltimore:
The State Department of The Environment is working closely with the Baltimore City Housing Authority to test the wastewater of more than 14 locations in Baltimore for COVID-19.
Janet Abrahams, with the Baltimore City Housing Authority, said crews are pulling samples twice a week from each site.
“This is a very successful process that they have implemented,” she said.
From the Chicago Tribune:
For the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, dozens of people gathered in the community room at a public housing building for senior citizens in South Chicago.
The room had been turned into a COVID-19 vaccination clinic and each of them patiently waited to get their first dose of the vaccine.
From the St. Paul Public Housing Agency's newsletter:
From ABC News 5 Cleveland:
With Cleveland’s mass vaccine location opening at Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center, tens of thousands of Ohioans will have the ability to get vaccinated over the next eight weeks.
The site was chosen because it’s near public transportation but also because it’s relatively close to communities of color which are getting vaccinated at lower rates than white communities across the nation.
Significant racial disparities persist in the vaccine rollout across the D.C. region, despite the fact that Black and Brown communities have borne the brunt of the coronavirus pandemic. Now, after months of navigating complex appointment systems and logistical hurdles, public health officials and community-led groups are trying to correct course on a vaccine distribution process that was not designed for the region’s most marginalized residents.
State Representative Jon Santiago partnered with Dr. Alister Martin, the South End Community Health Center, Mascon Medical, the Boston Housing Authority, Brewster Ambulance, and the Professional Firefighters of Massachusetts to set up pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics aimed at administering vaccinations to the most vulnerable and difficult to access populations in the Commonwealth.
From WMAR Baltimore:
Dozens of people in Baltimore got vaccinated on Friday as the Housing Authority of Baltimore City brought the vaccine to Brooklyn Homes.
They held a clinic for seniors and the disabled. The clinic is the latest in a series to bring vaccinations to housing authority properties.
Organizers say doing so has helped overcome vaccine hesitancy.
CLPHA endorsed Congressman Adam Smith’s (D-Wash.) Ensuring a Long-Term Housing Recovery Act, which was introduced this week in the House of Representatives. The bill would utilize local Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) to provide rental assistance as the nation continues to address the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recession.
