Division of Housing and Community Development

The COVID-19 crisis has impacted many Philadelphia families. If you are a homeowner facing foreclosure, please visit the SaveYourHomePhilly website or call the City’s Mortgage Foreclosure Prevention Program at (215) 334-4663. Philadelphia also offered three phases of rental assistance to tenants affected by COVID-19. Landlords and tenants can apply now for Phase 4 of the COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance Program. Tenants who applied for the first three phases can check the status of their application or ask for help. Tenants who were not able to apply for any phase may seek assistance by visiting the Philly Tenant website at http://www.phillytenant.org.

Pennsylvania Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP): Philadelphia County cannot accept the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services’ paper application. If you live in Philadelphia, you must wait until our application opens in order to apply for rental assistance through ERAP.

What we do

As part of the Department of Planning and Development, the Division of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) funds programs that help Philadelphia offer:

  • Homes for people at all income levels.
  • Commercial corridors with thriving businesses.
  • Healthy neighborhoods.

The programs we support help people buy their first homes or repair the one they’re in. They save families from foreclosure and eviction. They help homeless people with HIV/AIDS find permanent housing and people with disabilities live more independently. Our programs support small businesses and tend to Philadelphia’s vacant lots.

DHCD funding helps developers build new affordable homes and preserve existing ones. Those projects also create jobs in neighborhoods across the city. Our funding helps create better designed neighborhoods with engaged residents.

We’re working toward a city that has a place for everyone.
