Partnerships with UPMC for You and national funders commit over $7 million to increase affordable housing in Pittsburgh

Bridgeway Capital, a Pittsburgh-based Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), serves as UPMC’s lending partner for a newly established $7,950,000 affordable housing loan fund created through UPMC’s participation in Accelerating Investments for Healthy Communities, an initiative funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for the Center for Community Investment. The affordable housing loan fund combines capital commitments from UPMC for You, Bridgeway Capital, and the Kresge Foundation to offer flexible loans that enable more quality, affordable housing to be built in the City of Pittsburgh. Ultimately, this initiative will contribute to over 330 rental homes for low-income Pittsburghers.

Monmade helps Pittsburgh-area makers think green with new sustainability initiative

“A lot of the businesses we work with do a lot of sustainable things already, but they’re not marketing it,” said Monmade director Katie Schaible. “We saw the potential to highlight the things that they’re already doing, assess things they could be doing better and give them opportunities to create products that can be sustainable, and help bring them money but don’t harm the environment.”

One of the first ways sustainablyMonmade put its mission into action was with its One Green Product design competition this spring. Monmade challenged makers to come up with something for the built environment that combined design, innovation, sustainability and local impact.

When he reached out to us about restoring a distressed quadplex in Braddock, it was a natural fit to work together.
