Homeownership Program for First-Time homebuyers in the City of Pittsburgh
The URA, the Housing Authority of Pittsburgh, and their banking partners—First Commonwealth Bank, Slovak Savings Bank, and Dollar Bank—have rolled out program guidelines and applications for the first-time homebuyer program. The application process begins with the banks, and they will refer your application to the URA. Qualified first-time homebuyers can receive up to a $50,000 grant and a $40,000 loan. This is for Pittsburgh residents at or below 80% Area Median Income (AMI). For example, for a household size of 4-maximum income is $75,850 to qualify.
