The Pennsylvania Homeowner Assistance Fund, part of the American Rescue Plan Act, has millions of dollars left to help homeowners. But a backlog in applications is forcing residents to re-register to get assistance.
The city will spend $8 million on affordable housing projects, $5 million for home repairs for low-income and elderly residents, and millions more on public playgrounds, pools, and other programs to serve community members.
Roughly 6,700 Pennsylvania workers and retirees will have their pensions protected thanks to funds from President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, Sen. Bob Casey announced last week.
Most of those impacted are members of the United Steelworker (USW) and United Auto Workers (UAW).
