Funding

How do we pay our bills?

The Philadelphia Housing Authority has a $371 million annual budget that comes from several sources. (Our fiscal year runs from April 1 through March 31.)

We receive most of our funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

A small part of our budget - $1.5 million in state and federal money - comes in the form of grants. These grants are used for programs such as the Summer Food program.

PHA received $126.9 million in stimulus funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to improve and expand affordable housing throughout the city.

We bill $24 million in rents to our residents.
