Hill District 100

The Hill CDC focuses on the revitalization of the Hill District neighborhood through homeownership. The Hill CDC purchases properties that are often in need of significant rehabilitation. The properties may be purchased from the market where they are offered to the public for sale, or they may be abandoned houses that are condemned and are purchased through the Pittsburgh Property Reserve. However, the houses are obtained they are rehabbed for resale to homeowners. Most of the houses are affordably priced to fit in the budget of families that have income within 50% to 80% of the area median income.
