Pittsburgh Urban Initiatives
Making Tax Credits a Reality
Pittsburgh Urban Initiatives (PUI), a URA affiliate, catalyzes investments in low income neighborhoods by applying for and facilitating New Markets Tax Credits.
Pittsburgh Urban Initiatives (PUI) is an LLC affiliated with the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh. The initiative was created in order to apply for and facilitate New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) deployment for projects in the city and invest in low-income neighborhoods.
Our mission is to strategically invest in office, retail, mixed-use, and community facility developments designed to rehabilitate abandoned and blighted sites to build stronger communities.
For more information about PUI and the NMTC program, please contact Rebecca Davidson-Wager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
