These notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for activities to be undertaken by the name of The City of Pittsburgh and the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP).


On or about July 9, 2021, the City of Pittsburgh will authorize HACP to submit a request to HUD for the release of the following federal funds to undertake the project known as Northview Midrise: (a) HACP Moving to Work (MTW) Funds (approximately $9,400,000); and (b) Low Income Housing Tax Credits under IRS Code Section 42 (approximately $6,000,000); (c) Federal Home Loan Bank’s Affordable Housing Program Funds (approximately $420,000); (d) HACP Program Income Funds (approximately $760,000), and (e) Public Housing Operating Subsidy pursuant to Section 9 of the 1937 Act.

The release of the aforementioned funds will be for the purposes of developing Northview Midrise, which includes new construction of 4-story elevator building comprised of 43-units of low income public housing with approximately 4,800 square feet of commercial/community service facility on the first floor of the building located at 250 Penfort Street, in the Northview Heights neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh, 15214.  As part of this notice, the project requires the implementation of a set of development activities related to the completion of this project which may include, and is not limited to, demolition, acquisition, disposition, new construction, andremediation.  HACP is the land owner, Allies & Ross Management and Development Corporation is the developer, and Northview Midrise LLC (the mixed-finance owner entity) will be the owner entity of this development.  The total projected cost of the development is approximately $17,000,000.


The City of Pittsburgh has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required.  Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR). The ERR will be made available to the public for review either electronically or by U.S. mail. Please submit your request by U.S. mail to City of Pittsburgh, Office of Management and Budget, 414 Grant St, City County Building Room 501, Pittsburgh, Pa 15219 or by email to


Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to:

Whitney Finnstrom

City of Pittsburgh

414 Grant St

Room 501

Pittsburgh, PA  15219



All comments received by July 8, 2021, will be considered by the City of Pittsburgh prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds.  Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing.


The City of Pittsburgh certifies to HUD that William Peduto in his capacity as Mayor, City of Pittsburgh, consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied.  HUD’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the City and HACP use funding sources (a) through (c) identified under Request for Release of Funds above.


HUD will accept objections to its release of funds and the City of Pittsburgh’s certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the City of Pittsburgh; (b) the City of Pittsburgh has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the development process have committed funds, incurred costs or undertaken activities not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by HUD; or (d) another federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality.  Objections must be prepared and submitted via email in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to the HUD Field Office of Public Housing in Pittsburgh at 

Potential objectors should contact the HUD Field Office of Public Housing in Pittsburgh via email to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
