EMPOWERING LARIMER'S FUTURE
Join LCG in Building a Sustainable Community through Partnerships, Affordable Housing, Economic Development, Environmental Responsibility, Social Well-being, and Public Safety.
Larimer Vision Plan
The Larimer Land Use Vision Plan is the result of extensive community engagement and collaboration, particularly led by the East Liberty Concerned Citizens Corporation under Ms. Ora Lee Carroll's leadership. The 2020 update was developed closely with Donna Jackson and DeAnna Davis of the LCG, with contributions from various stakeholders including the Urban Redevelopment Authority, Habitat for Humanity, and Walnut Capital. The Larimer Consensus Group, convened by State Senator Jim Ferlo, represents diverse stakeholders committed to the neighborhood's revitalization, building on the longstanding efforts of organizations like ELCCC and the citizens of Larimer over the past 47 years.

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.
