      Governor Wolf has signed a new executive order that protects homeowners and renters from eviction or foreclosure until the 31st of August.  “I am taking this action to help families know they will have a roof over their heads and a place to live while all of us fight the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Gov. Wolf. “It takes one more burden off of people who are struggling and ensures that families can remain in their homes so they can protect their health and wellbeing.”
      Property owners that have accepted funds though the PHFA program that was created with the Cares Act have already signed an agreement to not foreclosure or evictions as part of the agreement that provided $175 million dollars in funding.  For more information on this program click here.
      The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Federal Housing Finance Agency, including Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture have also each extended eviction and foreclosure protections for housing under their authority to August 31st.
      These new protections do not protect renters and property owners from eviction if illegal activity or property damage was involved.  All renters and home owners struggling with paying their rent or mortgage should contact their landlord or mortgage provider immediately to discuss options.  Renters and homeowners are still required to make payments if they can.
