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 Residential & Consumer Lending Unit. 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 nonprofit developers to structure individualized financing programs that work over the long term to create sustainable housing developments.
