VPRP 2020 Side Yard and Blighted Structure Program


For a limited time only, the Allegheny County Vacant Property Recovery Program will be accepting applications to acquire vacant properties for side yards to an owner-occupied primary residence or blighted structure remediation at a reduced cost to the applicant.

Under the 2020 Side Yard and Blighted Structure Program, the county will waive the standard parcel fee of $3,000 for applicants for a side yard to their primary residence and applicants proposing to demolish a blighted structure. The county will reduce the fee to $1,400 for applicants proposing to rehabilitate a blighted structure.

All applicants will also be responsible for the appraised value of the property, a good faith deposit, and closing costs.

The application, which contains additional details about the Program guidelines, can be accessed at the county website: All applications must be postmarked by September 30, 2020. Only one application will be accepted per applicant. Up to 60 applications, with a maximum of five applications per municipality, will be accepted in the order received for consideration.
