Proposed Bill Would Extend Philly Eviction Diversion Program into 2023

It was no surprise to Hapco Philadelphia when Councilmember Helen Gym introduced a bill that would extend the city’s Eviction Diversion Program into 2023.

The EDP was technically a pilot program but few thought it would end when the law expires December 31st.

The program currently requires rental owners and tenants to meet with a mediator prior to any eviction filing.

Under Gym’s proposed extension, rental owners would have to wait 30 days before taking any legal action.


HUD Finally Hikes Housing Vouchers To Match Skyrocketing Rents

HUD Housing Choice Vouchers haven’t kept pace with soaring rent in Philadelphia.

It’s been the prime reason many Hapco Philadelphia members are reluctant to stay in the Philadelphia Housing Authority’s Housing Choice Voucher program:  The vouchers simply don’t cover the cost of rent prices.

So, starting October 1st, the federal government is increasing their estimates for fair market rents to better reflect the run-up in Philly rents.
