The URA and Neighborhood Allies partner on the Equitable Empowerment Fund to provide technical resources to small scale, community-based developers to respond to the recently released Centre Avenue RFQ

Jul 29, 2019

The Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA) has formed a partnership with Neighborhood Allies to provide technical resources to respond to the recently released Centre Avenue RFQ.

With support from the URA, Neighborhood Allies and our Shared Real Estate Talent Team will provide technical assistance and professional support to respond to the Centre Avenue Development Opportunity. These resources are being offered through the URA’s Equitable Empowerment Fund and are designated to organizations and businesses with annual revenue less than $500,000 per year with fewer than 10 employees. Respondents meeting the criteria are eligible to receive help with items such as RFQ language/packet development, budget and proforma development, site analysis, feasibility analysis, and general project support to ensure that the vision for the parcel is feasible and fits within the community plan. Small grants of up to $5,000 may be available for RFQ preparation costs to those who qualify. Please note that grants are not awarded to individuals.

To find out how to seek assistance with building your RFQ response packet, please complete this inquiry form and a Neighborhood Allies team member will be in touch.
