working with us

The URA wants to make it easy for homeowners, developers, business owners and other stakeholders to bring their vision to life or get the help they need.

The URA team is actively focused on finding real solutions that make Pittsburgh a better place to live, work and do business.

Whether it's helping a homeowner who needs to make an emergency repair after a damaging storm or supporting a real estate developer who sees the potential of an otherwise neglected neighborhood, the people at the URA are committed to making it happen. With energy and engagement.

Want to bring a project from vision to reality? There’s a URA staff member ready to help.
