The Lackawanna County Housing Coalition has released a housing needs survey to collect critical, up-to-date information about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the residents of Lackawanna County. The survey is intended for tenants, landlords, homeowners, and community organization staff and is available online in both English and Spanish:
Survey in English: bit.ly/lackawannahousing
Survey in Spanish: bit.ly/lackawannahousingspanish
Those who cannot complete the survey online may pick up a paper survey at United Neighborhood Centers Community Services, 410 Olive Street, Scranton, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.
The information collected through this survey will be used by local housing and social service providers to assist residents who have been impacted by the pandemic, particularly those who may face eviction or foreclosure when state-wide moratoriums expire at the end of August.
