HARRISBURG, January 21, 2020 – The McKeesport Housing Authority will be led for the 30th straight year by state Sen. Jim Brewster (D-Allegheny/Westmoreland).

“It has been my privilege to lead the housing authority over the last 30 years,” Brewster said.  “We have achieved a great many things during my tenure as chair, but we have more to do.

“I am excited to get our efforts underway this year as we work to ensure that affordable housing is available for citizens in the region.”

Brewster said that quality, affordable housing is an important element of a strong, healthy municipality.  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.
