Critical Commentary

This article states that Philadelphia's rental assistance program now includes funds for renters' utility payments, up to $2,000 each for water, electric, and gas. This is in addition to the $2,000 monthly for rent payments. This is made possible because of the $97 million in federal funds received by the City.  Since May 2020, the City has distributed more than $65 million to more than 14,000 households. The article does not give program guidelines, which are available here, https://phlrentassist.org/
