2015 Vacant Property Recovery Program


For a limited time, Allegheny County will be accepting applications to acquire vacant properties at a reduced cost to applicants. Moon Township is one of 37 municipalities to which the program is being offered by the county.

The program is designed to acquire blighted, tax delinquent properties and resell them to applicants for a reuse outlined in their application and approved by the township.

Under the 2015 Side Yard and Blighted Structure Program, the county will waive the standard parcel fee of $3,000 for applicants for side yards to their primary residence and will discount it to $1,400 for applicants proposing to rehabilitate or demolish a blighted structure. All applicants will be responsible for the appraised value of the property, a good faith deposit, and closing costs.

Applications must be submitted no later than June 30, 2015. Up to sixty applications, with a maximum of five per municipality, will be accepted in the order received for consideration.

For information or to request an application, please contact the Allegheny County Economic Development department at 412-350-1090 or visit
