New animated editorial cartoon shows plight of “Mom & Pops”

Hapco Philadelphia was poised a year ago to help tenants, Philadelphia City Council, and the rental property community to understand why the city’s inventory of low-to-moderate income housing was shrinking at a dangerous rate.  When the pandemic hit, it overwhelmed any issue that wasn’t COVID-related.  

It’s no surprise the pandemic has further accelerated the decline of affordable housing, as well as the reduced the number of rental property owners willing to serve that community.

Watch Hapco Philadelphia’s new animated editorial cartoon as “Sally” the landlord struggles to keep from drowning in a sea of COVID housing laws, eviction moratoria, and threatened rent control.
