URA-supported housing developments transform neighborhoods, protect affordability for Pittsburgh residents and enhance the value of our communities. Financing for homeowners and residential developers is offered by the URA's Housing Department. We offer a number of construction loan and grant gap financing programs that vary in features and eligibility requirements.
Financing is available for small- and large-scale new construction or the rehabilitation of rental or for-sale housing. We also provide equity financing to assist community-based organizations in real estate development projects that provide housing or job creation opportunities. We work with both for-profit and non-profit developers to structure individualized financing programs that work over the long term to create sustainable housing developments.
