COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance Program
The City of Philadelphia is helping renters stay in their homes. One way is by offering emergency rental assistance to renters who have lost income due to COVID-19. Rental assistance helps landlords too.
PHDC will begin accepting applications for Phase 2 of this program on July 6, at 2:00 pm.
PHDC accepted applications for Phase 1 in mid-May. Applications are now closed. Tenants who applied can check the status of their application or ask for help.
