Your Hill, Your Home
Hill CDC Programs
The Hill CDC is focused on connecting residents and stakeholders to economic and community development opportunities. In fulfillment of our mission, the Hill CDC provides extensive programming for residents. Please see an overview of some of our programming below. You will find links to additional information for our programs, as well as other resources for residents.
Homeownership is key in wealth and community building! The time is now for current residents and newcomers alike to realize the dream of owning their own home in the Hill District. The Hill District 100 is an initiative of the Hill CDC that embraces the Hill District's rich cultural legacy while advancing revitalization. The Hill District 100 provides relevant and meaningful education and support to potential home buyers to systematically grow the Hill District, increase wealth, and transform the community. This initiative provides a variety of services such as:
- Recruitment of Home Buyers
- Housing Counseling
- Home Financing Workshops
- Assistance in Navigating the Lending Process
- Assistance with Home Customization*
- Identification of Available/Suitable Properties*
- New Development & Restoration of Vacant, Tax Delinquent, and Foreclosed Structures*
These services offer a comprehensive approach to home buying in the Hill District for first-time buyers, as well as those who have been in the market before. Through the Hill District 100, renters may even realize that their monthly rent is more costly than a typical home mortgage and that homeownership is a possibility! As Pittsburgh grows and property values increase, so will the value of the Hill District community. Claim your share of the 1,000+ acres of the Hill District, and enjoy its vibrant culture and picturesque views of Pittsburgh's skyline.

Neighborhood Planning and Advocacy
The Hill District Master Plan has grown out of the sustained efforts of numerous residents, community groups, and stakeholders. Two community meetings each drew over 75 participants who provided valuable input to the goals and content of the Plan. With ongoing guidance and feedback from these many entities, the Hill District Master Plan is informed by the development principles, non-displacement strategies for reclaiming the Lower Hill, and community goals described in the Greater Hill District Master Plan. The Plan itself has two components: Program Initiatives and Urban Design Proposals. Learn more about Hill District plans here.
