The Housing Authority of Pittsburgh will be able to further a program aimed at helping guide low-income residents through financial barriers, especially housing issues, with the help of federal funding provided Monday. 

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded more than $2 million to housing agencies across the Commonwealth to pay for Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program coordinators. The Housing Authority of Pittsburgh will get $304,529 of that and another $169,307 will go to the Allegheny County Housing Authority.
