A dispute between the city’s largest public housing management firm and the Pittsburgh Housing Authority is continuing after the agency’s board failed to act on a proposed funding change.

Resident leaders and private managers of the Oak Hill development in the Hill District believe they are getting only a fraction of the funding accorded to other authority communities, and have asked the agency to apply to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for a change in their funding status.

The authority board last week opted not to ask HUD to include Oak Hill in a new program that stabilizes funding for included communities and makes it easier to borrow against future subsidies.

Miles Byrne, project director with Beacon/Corcoran Jennison, which runs Oak Hill, said that the authority will now miss the Dec. 31 deadline to seek improved funding status for the community, which has 475 low-income public housing units and 243 market-rate units.
