The Fairmont-Morgantown Housing Authority cares about our residents, staff and partners and in an effort to protect their health and wellbeing and combat the spread of Coronavirus Disease  (also known as COVID-19), FMHA’s offices will be closed to the public starting Monday, March 23rd. If you had an appointment scheduled during this time, please call your worker as some appointments may still be available by phone. Please use the link below for additional information.

COVID-19 Update

Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Dr. Benjamin Carson, Sr., was added to the White House Coronavirus Task Force. The risk of infection for Americans remains low and all agencies are working aggressively to monitor this evolving situation. 

The federal government is working closely with state, local, tribal, and territorial partners, as well as public health partners, to respond to this public health threat. As part of the multi-layered, cross-agency public health response, we encourage Public Housing Authorities to make the following information from the CDC available to their residents:

Economic Injury Disaster Loan
