    Can Jobs Solve Philly's Housing Problem - The Philadelphia Citizen
    As Philadelphia has grown more desirable and its housing prices increase , there is valid concern that the city needs to address housing affordability. There are 15,000 people who access a shelter in Philadelphia each year, more than 100,000 people on the Philadelphia Housing Authority waitlist, and about 26 percent of the city's population earning below the federal poverty level of $24,300 per year for a family of four.

Philly puts aside $3.4M more for Sharswood properties

Take for example, 2323 Harlan Street. The housing authority deposited $1,800 as just compensation for the 480-square foot vacant lot — for comparison the city assessed it at $2,300. But city tax records show that the previous property owner owes the city $5,905 in delinquent taxes and fees.
