Affordable Housing

Dave will support fair housing initiatives, and important related issues, like access to transportation, job opportunities, green space and clean air and water.   In doing so, he will actively seek the help and support of our government, our corporate community, and our large banks and our lending institutions that all played such a prominent role in causing inequities.

He will lead the Department of Community and Economic Development to take a more proactive role in tackling the affordable housing crisis that we face, being short of tens of thousands of affordable living units to meet current needs, with those needs only increasing. DCED also needs to be a neighborhood catalyst, as we have many old mill towns like Duquesne and Clairton that have plentiful funds allocated toward old industrial sites, but precious little in funding to revitalize housing stock and neighborhoods.

Dave will ensure that new affordable housing developments are built close to our public transportation routes connecting stable housing with jobs and workforce development. He’ll work to stabilize rental costs to assure that there are viable housing options for all income levels.
