Application FAQs

Q: What information will be asked for in my application?
A: You will be asked to include proof of income in the form of your most recent federal tax return, your latest paycheck stub, or your latest Social Security and/or pension benefit statement. You will also be asked to describe the condition of your home, the top three concerns you would like us to address with repairs, and list the names and birthdates of each resident in the home.

Q: What is the time frame of the application process?
A: Due to the high volume of applicants and the availability of funding, application for services is not an automatic process and selection of participants is limited. If your application meets eligibility requirements, you will be contacted by a member of our staff to schedule a walk-through inspection of your home so we can get an idea of the scope of work to be done.

Q: What if my home does not meet the requirements for Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh's services?
A: If Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh is unable to serve your home for any reason, we may be able to refer you to other housing agencies in the Pittsburgh area who also provide homeowner services.
