DHS Lists Housing as Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has designated the construction of housing as an “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce,” as well as leasing, property management and maintenance personnel. This is not a mandatory federal order; this is guidance from DHS that states can follow.

Details can be found in both the “Public Works and Infrastructure Support Services” and “Residential/Facilities and Services” sections of the guidance. Should you have questions about this list, please contact Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) at CISA.CAT@cisa.dhs.gov.
