PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh has been given a state grant to further rapid rehousing services for households experiencing homelessness.

A $250,000 Emergency Solutions Grant through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development was given to the city in order to provide services including housing location services, short and medium-term rental assistance, and housing stability services to 25 households experiencing homelessness.

The assistance will be available to adults-only households and households with children. Assistance will be determined through a needs assessment that will go through the city’s local coordinated intake for referral into the program.

The program will be operated through Auberle’s offices on Wood Street and those experiencing a housing crisis can call Allegheny Link at 1-866-730-2368.
