Hazelwood Initiative partners with Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh to help low-to-moderate income homeowners in Hazelwood repair and maintain their homes. This is an effort to help residents invest in their homes to help our neighbors enjoy the economic and social benefits of homeownership.
It’s hard enough purchasing a home, but it can also be challenging to keep up with all the repairs and maintenance. If this is your situation, we may be able to help!
#1: Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh: Free Home Repair Program
Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh (RTP) will provide qualified contractors and volunteers to perform repairs on your home at no charge so that you can live in a safe and healthy home.

#2: Hazelwood Initiative: Discount Home Repair Program
If you do not qualify for Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh’s program, we still may be able to help. Hazelwood Initiative wants to assist Hazelwood homeowners to invest in their homes to encourage improved property values and visible neighborhood pride. We want to do this in partnership with the homeowner occupants who want to improve the state of their housing.
Using RTP as a general contractor, homeowners can receive up to $6,000 (or $7,500 for a roof) in repairs and improvements, while only being asked to pay 1/4 of the total cost once that work is complete. In addition, participants may then qualify for up to $6,000 in free interior repairs.
NOTE: This program is currently unavailable, but we would be happy to add new applicants to our waitlist! Please email, mail, or deliver a completed application, and we will contact you at a later date.
