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.
Applications for Covid rental assistance are available at the Frankford CDC (4667 Paul Street). You can pick one up on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 am to 1 pm. The entire application must be completed with proof of income ID and copy of the lease. The landlord must sign a few documents as well.
Once the application is finished in its entirety, you have the option of either mailing it or faxing it. Partially completed applications will not be accepted.
