About Us

The Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP) is a municipal corporation, formed under the United States Housing Act of 1937, charged with providing decent, affordable housing for low-income persons.

The Authority is governed by a Board of Directors, which establishes goals, approves policy and budgets, and provides general direction to the HACP Executive Staff.

HACP provides publicly assisted housing comprised of traditional public housing, scattered sites and Housing Choice Vouchers (Section 8). We currently house more than 18,000 Pittsburghers, manage more than 2,200 public housing units, and provide oversight of an additional 600+ mixed-finance units.

More than half of our residents live in privately-managed rental properties located across the City of Pittsburgh, through their participation in the Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8).

Our facilities are conveniently located throughout Pittsburgh, with public and senior housing communities located in each region of the city.

HACP’s purpose is to develop and make available affordable, safe housing and to help families achieve the independence they strive for. A brighter future is always within reach thanks to the commitment of HACP.

Our administrative offices are located at 412 Boulevard of the Allies, Pittsburgh, PA, 15219. The main telephone number is 412-456-5000.
