COVID-19 Operating Procedures

The lobby of Dayton Housing Authority is now open during regular operating hours.  In order to provide as much protection to our guests as possible, we are observing the following procedures:

  • Lobby guests are limited to no more than three at any one time.
  • Rent will NOT be collected in the lobby but will be collected by drop box, U.S. mail, or through our online portal.  The drop box is located outside the front door of our lobby.  PLEASE do not place cash in the drop box.
  • Masks are required while in the building.

We are currently accepting applications for housing every Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Application packets are available in our office or by mail.  We encourage applicants to complete the package in advance and bring to the office on a Tuesday for an interview.  If there are three people in the lobby when you bring your packet to the window, we will ask you to wait in your car and will call or text you when it is your turn for an interview. 

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we are navigating this pandemic.
