Delaware County still has more than $37 million dollars in COVID-19 rental assistance, and it wants residents in need to collect.
The Delco Emergency Rental Assistance Program launched in March and still has funds to cover past due rent going as far back as April 1 of last year, as well as the largest past due utility bill and up to three months of future eligible housing/utility expenses.
To qualify, household income can’t be more than 80% of the median income in the area (see the income breakdown here), and applicants must show proof of loss of income due to COVID-19.
