Stefano Announces State Assistance to Support Uniontown Affordable Housing

Harrisburg – State Senator Pat Stefano (R-32) today announced the awarding of $1.2 million in tax credits to assist an affordable housing project in Uniontown.

The assistance was awarded to White Swan Apartments on West Main Street. The tax credits are part of a $12.4 million project that includes the preservation of the six-story mid-rise building consisting of 47 one-bedroom units for persons age 62 and above. The development is estimated to be a total of 65,452 feet.

The tax credits come through the PennHOMES program and were approved by the board of the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency, which administers the credits.

“Affordable housing for seniors is a key component of a healthy community, and I am pleased to announce this support to preserve such housing in Fayette County,” Stefano said. “I enjoyed learning about this project and advocating for it to the PHFA.”

The aid is awarded on a competitive basis, with only one-third of the applicants being approved. A total of $40.3 million in PennHOMES tax credits were awarded statewide.
