Pittsburgh has a history of working together. In the 40s and 50s government and business leaders joined together to turn an industrial city into a corporate headquarters city, a distinction it held until the 70s. In the 80s and 90s during our economic collapse, foundations continued to invest in Pittsburgh, funding riverfronts, arts and culture. Now it is our turn to address today’s serious problems head on: a global pandemic, racism and inequity, climate change, economic collapse, civil unrest.

We’re establishing a new paradigm. Through an unprecedented collaboration with our civic institutions and philanthropic and private sectors, we are leveraging our tax dollars to finance the critical investments that will build back a resilient and inclusive Pittsburgh for all.

We have to move forward by working together, the Pittsburgh way.

Following the P4 values of People, Place, Planet and Performance developed in 2015, the City of Pittsburgh has released a series of analyses and strategies to strengthen the fabric of the city to create a resilient, equitable, and livable Pittsburgh for all. The ONEPGH Fund will raise capital and bring together partners to work together to solve the city’s challenges and achieve 2030 goals.


How ONEPGH Was Developed

The City of Pittsburgh is committed to taking on our most significant challenges. As a follow up to the and the City and Heinz Endowments’ collaborative P4 Initiative, an Investment Prospectus was commissioned to create an action plan utilizing our P4 principles (people, planet, place, and performance) as the core foundation to address future challenges.

Since 2015, the City has assembled more than 2,000 Pittsburghers to identify the City’s shocks and stresses profile, as well as the most critical projects ready for implementation, with the intention to put existing plans and analyses into action. By 2030, we want to show measurable success in tackling our environmental stresses, maintaining cultural and natural assets, and eradicating hunger and homelessness. We envision safe and complete streets that don't just offer physical mobility but ensure social mobility and access to opportunities in each of our unique neighborhoods. By 2030, we envision our housing will be affordable, Pre-K will be available for all Pittsburghers, our stormwater will be an asset, and we will have a world-class water system.

How do we achieve this vision of Pittsburgh by 2030? We need the agility to work across sectors: public, private, nonprofit, and philanthropic, to create efficiencies and targeted outcomes by reducing fragmentation in the city. We need the resources to innovate, experiment and not fear failure, but use it as a tool to create better projects and programs. We need the reserves to rebound from the shocks and disasters that take us by surprise.

Throughout this process, Mayor Peduto convened working groups to take existing plans and analyses developed over the past five years, and identify and associate costs with those transformational projects that will inspire the city to thrive by 2030. The Mayor will use this project list, the ‘Investment Prospectus,’ to raise the capital needed to ameliorate the chronic stresses that currently impact resident well-being.

Pittsburghers Identified a Profile of Shocks and Stresses

Acute shocks are sudden, large-scale disasters that disrupt city services and threaten residents.

Chronic stresses are long-term, slow-burning issues that overwhelm the capacity of city resources and erode resident well- being. Pittsburgh is dealing with significant chronic stresses that, if left unchecked, risk the ability to escalate into a shock.

The Investment Prospectus is a list of initiatives designed to address the City’s major chronic stresses. While each initiative addresses at least one stressor, the overall intention of the Investment Prospectus is to address two of the most pervasive stressors: racial and economic inequity and fragmentation.

Cross-Sector Collaboration

Fragmentation between sectors challenges local governance and the ability to address endemic stresses facing Pittsburghers. The City of Pittsburgh alone includes 90 distinct neighborhoods and is home to over 3,100 non-profit organizations, many with overlapping missions that put them in competition for the same resources. By addressing fragmentation through intentional cross-sector collaboration and investment, the City sees the ONEPGH Investment Prospectus as a catalyst for cooperation to tackle our challenges and ensure that necessary services and opportunities are reaching our residents efficiently and effectively.
