News Release, Charles County Public Information Office

The Charles County Department of Community Services Housing Authority is suspending in-person appointments and inspections due to the coronavirus pandemic immediately.  Until further notice, all customers who currently have a scheduled appointment will be contacted by the Housing Authority staff to complete phone appointments or to reschedule for a later date.

There will be no penalties incurred by participants during this time due to canceled or rescheduled appointments or inspections. Participants are reminded, however, to continue to report any changes but only through electronic means, such as using the Housing online portal Assistance Connect, fax, email, or by sending information through the regular mail.

The situation of the COVID-19 is rapidly evolving and the operating status could change at any time. For safety reasons we encourage customers to conduct business remotely if possible, and avoid visiting our office in person during this time.  Citizens with special needs may contact the Maryland Relay Service at 711, or Relay Service TDD:  800-735-2258.
