Landslide Insurance and Assistance Program Town Halls

Landslide Town Hall

Dear Homeowner,


Has your property or community been affected by landslides? If you are one of the many residents concerned about landslides but have seen little to no remedy through the private insurance market, please join us at a Town Hall Meeting to discuss our efforts to establish a Landslide Insurance and Assistance Program in Pennsylvania.


Teaming up to advance bipartisan legislation, we are seeking to establish a state program to assist affected homeowners and local governments to access affordable landslide and sinkhole insurance coverage at a fair price, to evaluate potential landslide risks, and to provide tools and incentives to communities and individuals to mitigate potential damage caused by landslides. If this applies to you, we hope you will participate in one of the following town hall meetings to share your concerns, hear more about House Bill 589, and listen to subject matter experts including representatives from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and local government.


Session 1

When: Wednesday, September 20, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM

Where: Sewickley Valley YMCA Activity Center (upper parking lot)

625 Blackburn Road, Sewickley, PA 15143

RSVP by calling 412-262-3780


Session 2

When: Thursday, October 5, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM

Where: Activities Building, Riverview Park

Please share this notice with your neighbors. We hope to see you at one of these two sessions. Space is limited. RSVP so that we may ensure adequate space for everyone.
