Bedford Dwellings/Hill District Choice Neighborhoods
The Hill District Consensus Group is a proud partner involved with the Bedford Dwellings/Hill District Choice Neighborhood initiative. In 2016, the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP), the City of Pittsburgh and Bedford Dwellings community partners applied for and secured a $500,000 Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grant from the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The plan is for this funding to be used to support a two year planning process to kick start revitalization in the Bedford Dwellings/Hill District. The Planning process will result in a Transformation Plan which is a comprehensive, community-supported strategy to guide neighborhood investment. The Bedford Dwellings/ Middle Hill Choice Neighborhood Transformation Plan will build on previous planning efforts, leverage the neighborhoods’ numerous assets and promote a community vision for neighborhood revitalization and reinvestment.
