CARES Rental Relief Program (RRP)
Pa. Interfaith is the administering agency for RRP funds for the County of Adams.
We will begin accepting completed applications for rent assistance on July 6.
The Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, passed in March, provided $3.9 billion for Pennsylvania and is intended to help people hurt economically during the pandemic. In late May, the General Assembly directed $175 million of these CARES dollars to PHFA to provide assistance for struggling renters and homeowners. The portion for rent assistance is at least $150 million.
For additional details about the program. Please read the fact sheet.
Households must be at or below 100% of the Area Median Income in order to be eligible for the program.
