As hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians continue to accumulate rent and mortgage debt, Governor Tom Wolf has asked the general assembly to implement a relief program.
The governor, along with housing advocates, hosted a press conference. Governor Wolf said that if the current relief program is not fixed, more families could face homelessness by the first of the year.
“There is no reason any Pennsylvanian under any circumstance should struggle for housing/shelter. I have asked the general assembly to pass legislation to place a moratorium on evictions and foreclosures,” said Governor Tom Wolf ,(D), Pennsylvania.
The governor’s call to action comes after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s eviction moratorium expired in May.
