HARRISBURG – Mayor Papenfuse has extended the eviction moratorium for another thirty days in the City of Harrisburg. This fifth extension continues to temporarily suspend the eviction, ejectment or displacement of tenants or occupants from any residential dwelling unit or rooming house. The moratorium also includes an executive order prohibiting water shut-offs in the City for any delinquency, non-payment, or violation of any payment plan. 

“This moratorium on evictions and water shut-offs will continue to help protect our residents during these challenging times,” said Mayor Eric Papenfuse. 

The renewable 30-day suspension of evictions only applies to eviction for non-payment of rent. It has no effect on evictions related to criminal activity, threats to the health and safety of other residents, or damage to property. Nothing in the moratorium relieves a tenant of the obligation to pay rent. Violation of the moratorium may result in fines of up to $10,000 or imprisonment for up to 90 days for any individual who causes the violation.   

City residents in need of assistance or more information should email their inquiries to [email protected]. The City of Harrisburg Non-Emergency Information Help Desk can be reached at 3-1-1 or 717-255-3040. In case of emergency, residents should contact the Harrisburg Bureau of Police.
