Deadline for applications extended until November 4, 2020 for Phase 2.
The City of Philadelphia is helping renters stay in their homes. One way is by offering emergency rental assistance to help tenants who have lost income due to COVID-19. Rental assistance helps landlords too.
There have been two rounds of rental assistance for Philadelphia tenants. One, Phase 2, is opened again for applications. The other, Phase 1, accepted applications in mid-May. In both phases the landlord must agree to participate.
PHDC is accepting applications for Phase 2 of rental assistance until November 4, 2020. If you applied for Phase 1 you can still apply for Phase 2. If you were selected for assistance in Phase 1 you can still apply for Phase 2. If you were found to be ineligible for Phase 1 you can still apply for Phase 2. Phase 2 has different guidelines, so it is possible to get assistance in both phases.
