PHARE is the Pennsylvania Housing Affordability and Rehabilitation Enhancement Fund. Also known as the state housing trust fund, PHARE expands opportunity for people and communities in need by funding local housing. PHARE helps real people and gets real results.
The Campaign to expand the State Housing Trust Fund from 37 counties in PA to all 67 counties in PA was successful. In November of 2015, Governor Wolf signed Act 58, which funds the fund with revenue drawn from future growth in the existing Realty Transfer Tax, redirecting it back into the residential real estate market.
The newest revenue sources for PHARE- the National Housing Trust Fund, and realty transfer fees, are going to be distributed this year. Stay tuned for ways in which you can advocate for money for your county.
