UPDATE FROM NHA
Yá'át'ééh. This is a public service
announcement from the Navajo Housing
Authority regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus).

There is a continuing and growing concern over the COVID-19 global pandemic outbreak. The
health and welfare of our Navajo Housing Authority (NHA) employees and customers is our top
priority. Therefore, effective immediately, we have authorized administrative leave for our
employees. All employees are to report back to work on March 30, 2020 - the return date is
subject to change. During this time, standby personnel will continue to address emergency
work orders.
NHA is currently operating with a staff of essential personnel that includes a newly created
internal NHA COVID-19 Task Force which is vigilantly monitoring the COVID-19 situation and
how it is affecting our tenants both in the Public Rental and Homeownership programs.
NHA stands ready to assist and is pleased to announce it will be making a $1 million financial
contribution to the Navajo Nation to support in the following areas: providing cleaning
supplies, personal protective equipment (PPE), media expenses for updates to the community,
and providing food when available.
Additionally, the NHA is offering the use of its fifteen (15) Housing Management Offices to be
utilized as command centers for COVID-19 operations and distributions centers, if needed.
Lastly, we understand that our tenants may be experiencing a financial burden during this time,
therefore the NHA leadership have authorized the waiver of public rental and homeownership
payments for the months of April and May 2020.
Other actions in effect include the temporary suspension of: notices to vacate and lease
violations, evictions for non-criminal activity, unit transfers, move-ins, move-outs, routine
maintenance work orders, annual housing inspections, rental and homeownership late fees
and pest control services to public residential units. Existing repayment agreements and
recertification deadlines will be extended.
For additional information regarding NHA status and other public service announcements
regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, tenants may call NHA’s hotline number at (928) 871-2691 or
visit our website at www.hooghan.org. Other information regarding COVID-19 may be viewed
on the Centers for Disease Control’s Website at www.cdc.gov, and your local area health
department’s website.
On behalf of the Navajo Housing Authority, we encourage you to take care of yourself, your
family, and your community.
Thank you.
