To help curb transmission of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020, the Schenectady Municipal Housing Authority will suspend public access to the main office and the site offices through April 15, 2020.

Customer service remains our top priority and we have several alternate means for you to continue doing business with us:
  • Staff will be working remotely and will continue to monitor phones and email.
  • Staff will continue to process annual reexaminations.
  • Staff is aware of the unfortunate fact that our clients may experience job loss that may require a rent adjustment. Please call your Occupancy Specialist to report this information and be prepared to provide documentation from your employer.
  • Only emergency work orders will be addressed by maintenance staff during this time period: Call 518-372-5896 for emergency maintenance.
  • All external community room bookings are cancelled until further notice.
