Renters and Landlords: Cash Grants Now Available for Unpaid Water Bills!

Penalties for unpaid water bills resume May 1, 2021. Fortunately, cash grants are now available for water bills and other utilities. 

Philadelphia renters and landlords may be eligible for Philadelphia Housing Development Corporation (PHDC) grants of up to $2,000 for each utility. 

If a landlord applies, their tenant must be eligible. Landlords must get written consent from their tenant. If a landlord does not wish to participate, the rental assistance can be paid directly to the tenant. 

Applicants who received funds in Phases 1 to 3 of PHLRentAssist are eligible to apply this Phase 4 utility assistance. However, applicants may not receive funds for any months which they have previously been paid. 

Utility payments can only be for the current month and past-due utility payments (assistance is not available for future months’ utility bills.)

Don’t wait!

Penalties for unpaid water bills resume May 1, 2021 for customers who are not enrolled in the Tiered Assistance Program (TAP) or receiving a Senior Citizen Discount.
