The HSC has existed since 1991 to ensure there is an integrated, community based system of care that prevents homelessness whenever possible, rapidly rehouses people when homelessness cannot be prevented and provides wrap-around solutions that promote housing stability and self-sufficiency.
The DELCO Emergency Rental Assistance (DELCO ERA) grant program helps renters who suffered disruption and loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic with assistance with rent and utilities. The U.S. Treasury and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania allocated $37.2 million to fund DELCO ERA. The County has engaged Capital Access, Inc, a grants management firm based in the Delaware Valley, to assist with program management. All funds must be expended by end of 2021.
