CHP Headquarters

Community Housing Partners (CHP) is closely following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state health departments and working to protect our residents and staff in response to COVID-19. While the current situation has impacted our day-to-day operations, we are continuing to fulfill our mission of creating homes and communities that are healthy, sustainable, and affordable.

CHP Prioritizes the Welfare of Residents, Employees, and Partners

The CHP Emergency Response team meets regularly to monitor state and federal guidance and review our policies and procedures. CHP has taken active steps to keep our communities and work sites safe:

  • All corporate and property offices are following new health and safety protocols. We are limiting the number of employees at CHP work sites and requiring daily health screenings for employees and partners. Many employees are working from home, and CHP is forwarding calls so that residents and partners can reach staff. Maintenance employees are following new safety protocols when carrying out essential duties
  • All community centers, community rooms, and common spaces have been closed. Events hosted by CHP or outside partners have been canceled. We have communicated to residents and employees the importance of social distancing, as well as CDC and health department guidelines.
  • All employees have masks and personal protective equipment (PPE). CHP has also required all employees to complete training on PPE, cleaning and disinfecting, and hand washing. We are following best practices for cleaning and disinfecting to keep our work sites safe.
  • CHP Energy Solutions has resumed field activities. Following the suspension of weatherization and home repair services in March, CHP has developed new health and safety protocols to keep our technicians and clients safe and is now processing applications again.
  • Family washing hands
