The Local Share Account Statewide (LSA) has already been a boon to communities in its first year, offering no-match grant funds and the option to apply to cover design costs that are often hard to find a way to pay for. In addition — new this year — LSA grants can also be used to fund sidewalks that are not publicly owned so long as they are “for public use.”

What routes and corridors through your community have been identified as key routes to schools or parks or other everyday destinations and need to be improved? Do you have an Active Transportation Plan that highlights where those priority areas might be? The potential for this funding to be available for sidewalks is super exciting!

Additional eligible uses of funds include: Building Acquisition – Construction to include renovation and rehabilitation – Demolition – Planning, consulting, and design costs related to planning projects – Engineering, design, and inspection, including permitting fees.

Eligible applicants include: Counties – Municipalities – Municipal Authorities – Economic Development Agencies – Redevelopment Authorities – Land Banks – Councils of Government

PHFA Issues RFP for PHARE Funding to Support Local Housing Initiatives

Application deadline is November 17, 2023

The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency today is issuing a Request for Proposals soliciting applications from organizations for projects to improve the availability and affordability of housing across the commonwealth. Funding for this RFP is being provided through the Pennsylvania Housing Affordability and Rehabilitation Enhancement (PHARE) Fund. The total PHARE funding available this year exceeds $65 million.

PHARE receives its funding from the impact fee levied on natural gas drilling companies and a portion of the Realty Transfer Tax. Funding is available for housing initiatives in all of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties. PHFA is charged with administering the allocation of PHARE dollars.

“Now in its eleventh year, it’s gratifying to see the many ways this funding has been put to work expanding affordable housing options and preserving existing housing,” said PHFA Executive Director and CEO Robin Wiessmann. “The local organizations that apply for PHARE funding have done a terrific job of targeting the dollars to their most pressing housing needs.”

PHARE applications are completed and submitted entirely online, eliminating the need for paper submissions and simplifying the process for applicants. The RFP is located on PHFA’s website at https://www.phfa.org/legislation/act105.aspx​. The online application is accessible on the PHARE website at https://phare.phfa.org/. This website will be open to accept applications starting Monday, Sept. 18.  The deadline for application submission is 2 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 17.

PHFA is hosting a 90-minute informational webinar at 10 a.m. on Sept. 19 for organizations interested in applying for PHARE funds. The webinar will be recorded and made available online after the live event.

A link has been posted at https://www.phfa.org/legislation/act105.aspx​ for webinar registration. Questions may be directed to Clay Lambert at PHFA via email at clambert@phfa.org.
