 Home Repair Program launched in Elizabeth Borough.

Who: Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh (RTP) provides free home repairs, modifications and renovations to make homeowners’ houses safe and livable. We are an affiliate of the Rebuilding Together network that is in 166 cities around the US. We serve low-income Allegheny County homeowners, seniors, veterans and people with permanent disabilities. In the past 25 years, RTP has repaired over 2,300 homes.

Homeowners: If you are in need of home repairs, to qualify, you must be at or below 200% of the federal poverty guideline (see chart below), reside in the Borough of Elizabeth, have lived in your home for 3 or more years, and are up to date on your real estate taxes or on a payment plan.

Volunteers: Share your time. There are few volunteer experiences where you can see the tangible results of your work at the end of the day. Bring your department, group, church or business to a volunteer day guided by our skilled construction team. Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age (with parental permission).

Skilled Tradespeople: RTP is looking to employ local contractors on several of the Elizabeth Borough projects. We will be in need of general contractors, roofers, plumbers, electricians, and carpenters.

Where: All home repair projects will take place in the Borough of Elizabeth - unfortunately we do not have funding allocated for the greater township.

When: We are looking to start work in spring 2018 and wrap projects by early fall 2018. We are currently accepting applications and will continue until all funding has been allocated. We would like to have all projects selected by early April.

How to get started: Those looking to apply for home repairs, please call Director of Programs Katie McAuley at 412-247-2700 x 113 or email at kmcauley@rtpittsburgh.org.

Those looking for volunteer opportunities or to be hired for professional work, please call Project Manager Andy Hromoko at 412-980-9463 or email at andrew.hromoko@gmail.com.

Questions:

Feel free to contact Katie or Andy by phone or email. Or meet Katie to learn about the program and application at the next Elizabeth Area Development Corporation (EADC) meeting on Monday February 12th at Rockwell’s Red Lion, 6PM.
