FWHA’s Statement Regarding the Current Government Shutdown

January 14, 2019

While the Fort Wayne Housing Authority continues to monitor the effects of the current government shutdown, we have for years developed a reliance on a variety of resources to effectively manage the fiscal needs of our residents, vendors and operations.  With an understanding that a fully functioning government at the federal, state and local level provides the best means for effectively serving our community, FWHA along with affordable housing agencies throughout the state are monitoring this situation closely and working together to identify strategies that will serve the best interest of our residents.  FWHA also plans to meet with our residents, participants, landlords and property owners to review our housing policies and any address issues that may be of concern as the shutdown continues.
