Pennsylvania Homeowners Assistance Fund (PA HAF) is a funding program for utility services (water and wastewater) for customers (not renters but property owners) with delinquent payments. This relief program of $350 million is funded through the American Rescue Plan (ARP) and overseen by the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency, that will provide Pennsylvania homeowners impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic with financial assistance to help stabilize homeownership and prevent displacement. As part of the available relief, homeowners can receive up to $3,000 in grant assistance to prevent a utility termination.
Water or sewer customers must apply and, if eligible for assistance, the PA HAF will pay the authority directly and notify the amount of assistance to be disbursed to the customer.
