Solicitation Ordinance & Permit

Harrisburg’s Solicitation Ordinance, approved by Council in November 2019, outlines prohibited acts, exceptions, permit requirements, begging, soliciting or panhandling and penalties within Town Limits.

Recognized charitable organizations, churches, schools, civic organizations and similar neighborhood associations performing fund raising, sales, marketing or other activities for their organization are exempt from the requirements of the Ordinance.

Residents should call the Sheriff’s Non-emergency Number at 704-920-3000 if they have complaints about solicitations at their homes.
