The Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP) is committed to improving the lives of its residents through education. To this end, we have created a youth scholarship program administered through the Authority’s non-profit foundation Clean Slate E3. Students are eligible to receive scholarship installments, in the amount of up $4,000 per year (with the possibility for a partial match provided from NEED) for a period of up to four years.
