INFORMATION FOR INDIVIDUALS
If you are concerned about how to pay your mortgage or rent because of the coronavirus national emergency, we have information on what to do now, and options for mortgage and rent payment relief.
Today, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) , and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) partnered to launch a new mortgage and housing assistance website to help homeowners and renters during the coronavirus pandemic.

INFORMATION FOR SMALL BUSINESSES
An Additional funding opportunity that just became available to small businesses, below.
(The City has no affiliation to this program, therefore we cannot answer any questions).
Pennsylvania 30 Day Fund
The Pennsylvania 30 Day Fund provides forgivable loans up to $3,000 to small businesses in need.
Pennsylvania businesses that qualify for assistance from the Fund are:
- For-profit small businesses that employ three to 30 people;
- Based in Pennsylvania and have been operating for at least one year;
- Owned and operated by a Pennsylvania resident.
The funds dispersed to small businesses by the Pennsylvania 30 Day fund do not need to be repaid. If businesses who receive the Fund’s assistance do, at a later date, wish to “pay it forward” to another Pennsylvania small business in need of assistance, they may do so by directing those dollars back to the Fund, which will disburse the funding to another Pennsylvania business in need.
The application can be submitted from the applicant’s phone in less than 10 minutes
Approvals occur within 3-5 business days, approved businesses can expect an immediate transfer of funds
