If You Are You Experiencing Homelessness
The County of Chester has received over $34.5 million to provide eligible county residents with emergency rental and utility assistance. While the eviction moratorium has been extended until July 31, 2021, it is highly unlikely that there will be any future extensions.
To access the program, residents must call 2-1-1 to conduct an initial intake and referral to one of Chester County’s five contracted providers.
Funding will serve individuals and families that are obligated to pay rent and meet the following three criteria:
Qualify for unemployment or have experienced a reduction in household income, incurred significant costs, or experienced a financial hardship, directly or indirectly, during COVID-19.
Demonstrate a risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability.
Have a household income at or below 80 percent of the area median (Income limits are subject to change per guidance from the federal government).
Family of 1 = $52,950
Family of 4 = $75,600

Emergency Rental Assistance
HSI provides emergency rental assistance to low and moderate income families and/or individuals who are facing eviction, are homeless or are near homeless. The program guidelines require that applicants demonstrate that they meet income requirements, that the need for assistance was caused by an emergency, and that they have sufficient income to maintain a stable housing environment after receiving assistance from the program.
