Home Improvement Loans and Grants
Through our home financing programs, the URA helps hundreds of Pittsburgh homeowners create the dwellings of their dreams.
Our assistance extends far beyond financing, as URA staff will help you identify contractors, develop project specifications and assure that all tasks are completed in a workmanlike fashion. That’s how we make an impact on the lives of City residents.
