Second Phase of Covid Rental Assistance

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.

See details below.

Frankford CDC Hiring Corridor Cleaners

Frankford CDC is hiring more corridor cleaners!

Thanks to Mayor Kenney and City Council’s Fiscal Year 2020 City Budget, which allocated an additional $2 million to corridor cleaning programs, organizations such as the Frankford CDC are able to increase their cleaning efforts. Without our elected officials and the advocacy of Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations, this would not be possible.
