URDC recently received $17,000 from the City of Philadelphia’s PHL COVID-19 Fund, a collaboration between the City of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Foundation, and United Way to aid nonprofits working to respond to the impact the pandemic is having throughout the Greater Philadelphia Region.

URDC grant money will be used to fund emergency repairs for homeowners in northwest Philadelphia who are unable to pay for a repair due to loss of income from the coronavirus pandemic.

Thank you to the PHL COVID-19 Fund for helping families in northwest Philadelphia affected by the caronavirus pandemic. URDC repairs are currently on hold during the City’s stay-at-home order but eligible candidates for projects using the Fund’s grant are being accepted and prioritized based on level of severity. These repairs will begin contingent on the City’s lifting its stay-at-home order and permission of the homeowner.
