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. Phase 2 is now accepting applications. TO APPLY VISIT PHLRENTASSIST.ORG
PHDC is accepting applications to buy land and responses to competitive sales and Requests for Proposals. However, while PHDC, the City and the other Land Management Agencies are closed, all deadlines for the submission, review and approval of certain land management documents and applications are tolled as outlined in the attached Memorandum. As provided in the Memorandum, among other things:
- Certain land disposition documents may be submitted, but they will be reviewed by the applicable Land Management Agency as and when time permits.
- Expiring individual garden agreements are automatically extended for twelve (12) months.
- Competitive sale submissions will be addressed on a case-by-case basis and applicants should review the applicable bid request on the PHDC website for further direction.
