GENERAL Q & A
Q: What are some resources to help Georgia residents during COVID-19 restrictions?
A: For internet resources visit the Georgia’s Internet Access for COVID-19 page. Additional resources can be found on the DCA COVID 19 State Services.
Q: Does DCA have any insight into how the State Government will consider LIHTC housing professionals, specifically if they are going to be considered essential service personnel?
A: DCA’s LIHTC partners (owners, management companies, etc) should consider national, state and local guidance to determine the definition of essential services. DCA considers the health and safety of residents to be of the utmost importance. While urgent and emergency repairs are unavoidable, staff should practice safety precautions and have access to protective wear and equipment.
Q: Has there been any change to mail services at DCA?
A: Staff in the Housing Finance & Development Division and Historic Preservation Division are currently teleworking. Limited staff are in office to maintain daily functions. If packages are mailed to either office, please do not request a receipt signature so that in-person contact during mail delivery is limited.
Q: Are you looking at offering any other waivers that you have not released that we can know about now?
A: Please continue to visit our compliance website and read our e-mail notices for any policy updates regarding COVID-19 and compliance information.
