(Harrisburg – January 15, 2021) – The McKeesport Housing Authority will again be led by Senator Jim Brewster (D-Allegheny/Westmoreland) who has volunteered his time for the 31st consecutive year.

“It has been a privilege to lead the McKeesport housing authority,” Brewster said.  “We have achieved many things during my tenure as chair, but we have more to do.

“Now more than ever, it is important that affordable housing is available.”

Brewster said that quality, affordable housing is an important element of a strong, healthy community. He said that he will continue to work with the members of the authority to solve issues and deliver secure housing. 

The authority is responsible for more than 1,000 units including senior, handicapped-accessible, and neighborhood sites. 

The McKeesport Housing Authority is the third oldest housing authority in Pennsylvania. It was created under the auspices of the United States Housing Act of 1937. In addition to providing housing, the authority works in concert with other organizations to provide community assistance programs.
