Pittsburgh Housing Needs Assessment

Project Description

The City of Pittsburgh created the Affordable Housing Task Force in 2015 to assess the current and future landscape of housing affordability in the city, evaluate current programs and initiatives to produce new affordable units and preserve existing ones, and make recommendations to the Mayor and City Council. M&L worked with the Task Force’s Needs Assessment subcommittee to study and analyze the data, trends, and characteristics associated with the local housing market. This involved describing supply and demand, identifying housing gaps, and modeling residents’ vulnerability to displacement at the neighborhood level. The Task Force used the final report to support and inform the policy recommendations presented to Council and the Mayor.
