City, URA, and Housing Authority Host Walking Tour of Larimer Choice Neighborhoods Homeowner Assistance Program Homes
PITTSBURGH, PA (November 2, 2020) Mayor William Peduto and officials from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP) held a walking tour event today to showcase some of the homes that received roof and façade improvements from the Larimer Choice Neighborhoods Homeowner Assistance Program (CNHAP).
Larimer CNHAP was a program offered as part of the $30 million Federal Choice Neighborhoods Implementation (CNI) grant that was awarded to Larimer and East Liberty in 2013 by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The program began in 2016 and has provided grants up to $20,000 to 90 homeowners within the Larimer Choice Neighborhoods boundary to complete façade, roof, sidewalk, and other exterior repairs. The total funding for the program was $1.6 million from the CNI grant and community development block grants.
