Class of Housing/Services: McKeesport Downtown Housing provides much needed housing for people facing homelessness.
84-unit structure that houses homeless and low-income individuals.
In 2010, the Department of Human Services for Allegheny County approached ACTION-Housing to own/manage the McKeesport YMCA. The McKeesport YMCA was merging with the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh and the decision was made to close the facility which had 84 Single Room Occupancy (SRO) units. ACTION-Housing agreed to manage the building and to lead the effort ot preserve these housing units for the homeless or those at-risk of homelessness. After determining that it was feasible to continue to operate the structure as SRO housing, ACTION-Housing was successful in receiving an allocation of $10 million in Low Income Housing Tax Credits which will be used to completely renovate the property. Construction will incorporate the latest technology and, when completed in 2013, will be the first multifamily Passive House in the United States.
