PA State Legislature set aside $175 million of the $3.9 billion of federal CARES Act funding that was given to the commonwealth for the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency. $150 million would go towards rental relief, and $25 million would go to mortgage relief. Each county in PA was given a different amount of money based on the county’s population. Applications to obtain the CARES assistance for both renters and homeowners will be available starting Monday June 29th.
Eligible Pennsylvanians would be able to receive $750 a month for up to a year. Rental relief would only be accessible for future rent payments, not previous months.
