PHDA: Pittsburgh Housing Developement Association, Inc.

Helping First-Time Homebuyers

Active for nearly 30 years, PHDA empowers low and moderate income families who dream of owning a home — through education, by helping them qualify for first-time homebuyer assistance, and by linking them to community resources. Bringing together concerned individuals, corporations, churches and government entities, we believe that helping families buy and maintain their first home is a first step to renewing neighborhoods.
