Dear Residents,

The WHA is taking COVID-19 very seriously and has taken swift action to minimize the risk to our residents, staff and visitors. An internal task force has been established and is meeting daily to review updates and respond accordingly. We remain in close contact with local officials and community partners.

The WHA would like to take a moment to share several operational changes and safety measures being implemented effective immediately. These changes will be in effect until at least May 4,2020 at which point the WHA will reassess and reevaluate to determine next steps.

The Wellesley Housing Authority administration office will be working remotely starting Tuesday 3/24/2020 at 12:00 PM. We will be checking our voicemails every hour and retuning phone calls to residents. We will also be checking our email regularly and responding to residents.

Due to the economic instability currently at hand, the Wellesley Housing Authority has decided to postpone all ANNUAL recertification’s. We will be implementing a new schedule for annual recertification’s at a later date. 

We will continue to do all INTERIM rent adjustments: Anyone who is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic we will adjust your rent accordingly. This is an evolving situation, changing by the day so we ask that you please work with us and understand that we are doing everything we can to keep all residents informed. Contact Jackie Sullivan via e-mail jsullivan@wellesleyhousing.org 

Maintenance will only be responding to emergency or urgent work orders effective immediately until May 4, 2020.
