To Our Residents and Partners

Safety for our community is very important to the Housing Authority of Salt Lake City (HASLC). HASLC is open for business as much as possible. We are working together in this unprecedented situation to ensure the well-being of our housing residents, program participants, and staff. In addressing the rapidly changing situation with novel coronavirus (COVID-19), HASLC will rely on the guidance and direction of public health authorities, including Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Utah Department of Health, amongst other leadership entities.

As the outbreak of COVID-19 continues to impact the Salt Lake area, HASLC is limiting in-person interactions as recommended by the CDC. All HASLC offices, including the main office located at 1776 So. West Temple and all offices located on HASLC properties, will be closed to the public, except for critical or emergency issues. Communication with our staff should be made by phone, e-mail, USPS mail, or online until further notice.

  • Scheduled Appointments: Any regularly scheduled appointments during this closure, will be rescheduled for a later date.? Your caseworker or property manager will contact you to discuss your specific appointment.
  • If you need to drop off paperwork or any other items, a secure drop box is located at the main office: 1776 So. West Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84115. Most HASLC-owned properties also have drop boxes available on-site.
  • Inspections and Maintenance Repairs: Our mobile maintenance team is focusing on critical items at this time. Critical requests can be submitted by email or phone to your property. Please be patient as we prioritize maintenance work orders. All recertification inspections are delayed until further notice; you will be contacted by your case worker to discuss. New move inspections, and emergency/life threating inspections will take precedence while utilizing all precautions for non-contaminations.
  • Conducting Business: We are encouraging our residents, waiting list applicants, and partners to conduct all business by phone, email, or mail.

We are committed to maintaining essential business operations and providing essential services to our customers and community. We ask for and appreciate your patience and cooperation as we implement temporary contingency plans.

As Salt Lake County’s current Stay Safe, Stay Home public health order extended to May 1, 2020.

  • Modeling shows coronavirus peaking in Utah in late April or the first week of May.
  • Hoping to prevent a second spike, the Mayor and her team of health care professionals and advisors believe an extension of the order is necessary.
  • The health order could be extended perhaps through Memorial Day and, if prudent, be rescinded, or could be extended two weeks at a time.
  • Mayor Wilson recognizes the economic impact of a stay-at-home order and acknowledges the financial hardships that are being felt by individuals and families. She believes, however, that as we all follow well-informed health orders, more lives will be saved, and we’ll be able to get back to work sooner than later.
  • The Mayor and the county health department will continue to base the timing of all health orders on trusted, expert data and will lift the orders when the impact of the virus to public health is sufficiently decreased.
  • Mayor Wilson plans to announce the extension of the Stay Safe, Stay Home health order by this Thursday or Friday.
  • Extension of the Salt Lake County public health order is not to be confused with the July 6 extension of the county’s state of emergency declaration, which allows the county to bypass certain regulations and access federal resources as it responds to the COVID-19 crisis..


  • Under Utah Code 26A, local health departments may be more restrictive than the State of Utah.
  • Salt Lake County believes its health order offers the correct balance between allowing economic activity and preventing the spread of COVID-19 among residents..
