 The Chester Housing Authority (CHA) was formally recognized by Government Technology magazine last week for its “Building Community” online video series. The housing authority was among a select few special district agencies across the country chosen for applying innovative technologies and leadership in response to COVID-19.

 CHA launched the online information series in April to rapidly respond to the social isolation impacts of the novel coronavirus. Faced with an unfamiliar landscape of radical health recommendations, limited in-person contact and widespread community confusion, CHA organized an effective mode to communicate its messages to residents, business partners and the community at large.

The Building Community video series was the answer.


“At CHA, we strive to be engaged and in tune with our residents’ needs that extend beyond affordable housing,” said CHA Executive Director Steven Fischer. “We knew we needed to establish a substitute for our in-person residential development programs – and fast. Thanks to our dedicated staff, strong technological infrastructure and digital savviness, we’ve been able to keep serving our residents through productive programming.”
