Thank you for your interest in the Landlord Working Capital Loan Program.

The City of Philadelphia and Impact Loan Fund are launching a citywide loan program to assist landlords who have been impacted by tenant unemployment and business shutdowns from COVID-19.  In the current environment, with an eviction moratorium and high rates of disruption for renters,  the program will provide working capital to landlords who are having challenges covering their expenses. This program is targeted to landlords who own 15 or fewer rental units that are leased at affordable rates.
