Montgomery County’s homeless and emergency housing assistance is provided through the Your Way Home system. Call 1-877-5643 for help through the county’s centralized system for screening and intake. Willow Grove CDC does not provide emergency or transitional housing assistance.
Besides the county’s Your Way Home programs, sometimes faith-based organizations or community service organizations may be able to help on a one-time basis. Willow Grove CDC does not offer funding for emergency rental assistance.
Willow Grove CDC accepts Section 8 vouchers for its own housing, but does not place people in public housing. Contact the Housing Authority at 610-275-5720. Other subsidized housing sites in Montgomery County can be viewed at: http://www.montcopa.org/documentcenter/view/14482

No, we offer rental housing only. However we are a member of Montgomery County Partners for Homeownership; their website is www.mcpho.org. Another valuable resource for prospective buyers is the county’s First-Time Homebuyer Program. See www.montcopa.org/DocumentCenter/View/17665. Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA) has additional information on its grant and loan programs at www.phfa.org.
It’s hard to say because applicants have different needs for numbers of bedrooms, and we have limited availability. Also, some of our rental units have different income requirements or residency restrictions. For example, some of our properties are limited to Abington Township residents.
Rents vary based on type, number of bedrooms, location, and utility allowances. However, they are always lower than area market rents for similar housing.
In most cases, the tenant pays all utilities, which may include electric, gas, oil, water, sewer, and trash removal. Utility services vary by property.
In PA, there is a Homeowners Emergency Housing Assistance Program (HEMAP), which can be accessed though government-certified counseling agencies. To find one of these in Montgomery County, check: http://www.phfa.org/forms/counseling_agencies/hemap_agencies/hemap_montgomery.pdf Most of these agencies are also government certified to do credit counseling.
The only federally authorized site is www.annualcreditreport.com. This site is sponsored by Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax. Their reports can be accessed through the site.
