The Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP) has used its MTW designation to focus on the following two areas:
- To reposition HACP's housing stock by becoming more competitive in the local housing market, operating cost effectively, providing a positive environment for residents and providing both higher quality and broader options for low-income families; and,
- To promote self-sufficiency for residents via programs and policies that encourages work and financial independence for those able, and promotes independent living for the elderly and disabled.
HACP administers approximately 5,846 public housing units and 6,237 Section 8 certificates and vouchers. In addition, HACP has 173 Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation, 390 Section 8 New Construction, and 444 HOPE VI Units.
