Emergency Rental Assistance Program Notification


Schuylkill Community Action’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program ended in August. We are no longer accepting applications. Case managers are working with existing clients and will contact you if we need information. If you have an active eviction, please call our office to speak with a housing specialist about eviction prevention counseling.

It’s important to consider all other options to make rent payments. See some resources below to help with housing stability:
