Thousands of Pennsylvanians are at risk of losing their homes as counties across the state remain backlogged with applications for rental assistance. These are difficult systems to manage, not least because each county has its own provisions and resources.

On Thursday, Aug. 5 at 5 p.m., Charlotte Keith of Spotlight PA, Kyle Webster of Action Housing, and Michelle Dempsky of Legal Aid of Southeastern PA participated in a free panel and Q&A on everything we know about evictions and rental assistance in Pennsylvania.

A full recording of the event is available below.
