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 20,000 Pittsburghers, manage more than 4,000 public housing units, and provide oversight of an additional 900 mixed-finance units.
More than half of our residents live in privately-managed rental properties located throughout the City of Pittsburgh, throughout 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 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 in downtown Pittsburgh at the Civic Building, 200 Ross St., Pittsburgh, PA, 15219. We occupy five floors within the building and are open Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The main telephone number is 412-456-5000.
