Hapco Philadelphia has been lobbying lawmakers in city hall, Harrisburg, and Congress that more money is needed to help landlords and their tenants catch up on back rent from the eviction moratorium.

Pandemic rent relief funding in Philadelphia ran out last year, leaving landlords owed tens of thousands of dollars.

And now, we learn that Governor Tom Wolf is using a budget surplus from millions of dollars in federal pandemic relief for everything except landlords and tenants!

Philadelphia has a nationally recognized infrastructure created for the PHL Rent Assist program, and Hapco Philadelphia urges Harrisburg lawmakers to use PA’s budget surplus to make landlords whole again!
