Transforming Public Housing to Provide Better Services for Residents

Over the last decade, the housing market in Pittsburgh has shifted dramatically, with rents and home prices rising significantly throughout the city. Responding to the acute need for affordable housing, the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP) is adapting its policies and procedures to the changing housing landscape, and working to expand the services provided to residents.

FUSE Fellow Della Williams will help develop and implement a plan to adapt HACP’s role to serve the growing number of Pittsburghers in need of housing and other key support services. Williams will identify projects with the most potential and begin their implementation. She will also help the Housing Authority identify one or two pilot communities within the public housing portfolio to scale existing wrap-around service models.
