URA facade renovation grant application period still open

The Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh has informed us that the application period is still open for their facade renovation grant program.  The program is available to six neighborhoods in Pittsburgh:  Arlington, Central Northside, Garfield, Manchester, Upper Hill District, and Polish Hill.

The grant is an up-to-$5,000 matching grant for eligible owners to fix up the facade (front) of their residential property.  The grant pays up to 50% of the total project costs up to a $5,000 maximum.

There does not appear to be any information about this program on the URA website.  We have an informational flier at the PHCA office.  For more information, contact Quianna Wasler of the URA at 412.255.6550, or email her at qwasler@ura.org.

  1. My husband and I applied for this once and got a letter that it was rejected as 3 other people got it-is this to mean that we should apply once again or not. Just wondered as it would be nice to get some help with our project. Lived on Polish Hill all my life and never got a cent of help from anyone so this seemed like a miracle till we got the letter of rejection. Appreciate any response.

    We live at 3341 Melwood Avenue.

    Thank You

  2. Patricia,

    This blog post is about a URA grant.

    It has no connection to the grant you applied for, the Polish Hill Pivotal Streets grant, which was announced in February and closed in late April.
