Policy and Advocacy

Recognizing that their collective voice would be stronger than their individual voices, community groups across Pittsburgh came together in 1988 to advocate for holistic reinvestment in the city’s neighborhoods. From its very beginning, PCRG has been committed to advocating for sound public policy and government practices to revitalize low- to moderate- income communities. PCRG seeks to affect system change at the local, state, regional, and federal level through advocating for sound community revitalization policies and practices.

The different, and integrally linked, working groups of PCRG carry out this vision on a daily basis. See the below working group pages for more information on current policy considerations. To learn more about PCRG’s working groups and to get involved, contact Kathryn Schlesinger at kschlesinger@pcrg.org.
