Resources Related to Coronavirus and Rural Housing

Date of Review: July, 2021

This webpage presents a list of Covid-19-related resources that pertain to housing. Although the webpage title explicitly refers to rural housing, it links to resources that typically pertain to housing in general that would be relevant to readers interested in housing in both rural and non-rural areas. It contains links to resources from several government agencies, such as the CDC, FEMA, and Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), with documentation of government aid/funding programs as well as guidance on preventing the spread of Covid-19. This resource is not without weaknesses; in particular, some of the links at the top of the page are broken, and many linked resources are from the early weeks and months of the Covid-19 pandemic (i.e. March & April 2020) and may thus be out-of-date. Nevertheless, the webpage contains enough links to informative and recently updated resources that it should be of interest to those seeking information on Covid-19 and housing. —Dave Liss, PhD, NCEAS
