The housing initiative of the Pittsburgh Hispanic Development Corporation is a collaborative effort between PHDC and real estate companies/landlords to facilitate access to the rental market for our community. We work with realtors to find places for individuals and families, along with helping to arrange private financing.
Hispanic Corporation Housing Assistance Program COVID-19
The Hispanic Corporation is working with PHFA (Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency), and Community Justice Project (CJP), in an assistant economic Program called CARES - RRP (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security - Rent Relief Program), to contribute with rent payments, for families who are renting a household in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and because of COVID-19 effects into labor sector, they can’t pay their leases by their own.
The Pittsburgh Hispanic Development Corporation has extended financial assistance to 47 households to pay rent from privately raised funds. Additionally, the Hispanic Corporation has been providing assistance to 139 households and landlords to apply for Rent Assistance under the CARES ACT program. Currently, 92 applications have been completed.
The Pittsburgh Hispanic Development Corporation plays an important role in community and economic development in Pittsburgh. The organization is fulfilling its mission but we need financial support. There are more people that need assistance than funds we can receive. We kindly ask that you consider making a donation. Thank you for your support! Donate Here
