During the COVID-19 pandemic, HACP issued an immediate suspension of all rent-related evictions to ensure the safety and health of our residents. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also issued a temporary eviction moratorium to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.
Many of our families and neighbors have experienced challenges staying up-to-date on their rent during the COVID-19 Pandemic, and the HACP is committed to ensuring they have the resources and information they need to avoid lease termination for delinquent rent.
If you are currently behind on your rent, you are not alone and the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh can help you.
How to Get Back on Track
From Affordable Repayment Agreements to the various free resources available, there are a number of ways to help you come current with your rent.
Let Us Know About Changes in Income
If you have experienced a decrease in income, you may be entitled to a reduction in your monthly rent charge. Be sure to let us know about any changes in income you’ve experienced. You can fill out the Income Reduction Form on our website here. Send verification of income to: LowIncomePublicHousing@hacp.org (for Public Housing) or email@example.com (for Section 8).
If you are submitting an annual or interim recertification packet, you can schedule an appointment with your management team, submit them by mail, electronically by e-mail, or through the secure drop boxes at each management office.
Set Up an Affordable Repayment Agreement
You may be eligible for a reasonable repayment agreement in accordance with our Repayment Agreement Policy. To get more information and to discuss your situation, please visit your Site Manager to set up a repayment agreement.

Take Advantage of Resources and Services
There are many resources and services out there to help you pay your rent and stay in your home.
Eviction Prevention Program – Ursuline Support Services
The Eviction Prevention Program is provided through HACP’s partnership with Ursuline Support Services.
EPP offers supportive services that focus on residents of the HACP family communities who may be at risk of situations that could lead to eviction.
A diagnostic approach is used to identify and address factors precipitating eviction or other residential infractions that could warn eviction.
Eviction Prevention Coordinators provide support to help connect residents to the proper resources needed to help correct their situation, including financial resources and education and referrals to healthcare and behavioral or mental health providers.
