Home : Who We Are : PurposeGTECH stands for Growth Through Energy & Community Health. Across Allegheny County, we mobilize residents, local policy-makers, and like-minded organizations to transform vacant spaces into thriving places everyone can enjoy. Successful in our ability to build lasting and mutually beneficial relationships while trialing innovative solutions and investing in those that live, work, and play in those communities, we work with people of all ages, with a specific focus on underserved communities. By ensuring underutilized land serves the greater good, we improve the social, economic and environmental health of the whole community. We believe changing an unjust environment requires investments in people, tangible actions, and an iterative process that results in more opportunities for collective benefit. As a result, GTECH invests in a process that equips motivated people to help create safe, green, resilient and livable spaces within their own communities.
