CONSERVATION & REDEVELOPMENT

With its conservation and redevelopment programs, the authority removes blight by acquiring and rehabilitating existing houses or demolishing dilapidated buildings and constructing quality, affordable single-family houses. In revitalizing areas of the city designated "redevelopment and conservation areas," RRHA attracts families and businesses to the city.

In areas of the city called "conservation areas," RRHA preserves neighborhoods and commercial districts primarily by rehabilitating existing structures. Preserving buildings of historical and architectural significance is an integral part of conservation and redevelopment programs. In conservation areas, RRHA provides loans and incentives for commercial and residential redevelopment. Preserving buildings of historical and architectural significance is an integral part of RRHA's programs in redevelopment and conservation areas.

Other programs in redevelopment and conservation areas -- the Spot Blight Program and Neighborhoods in Bloom, enable RRHA to rehabilitate individual properties and to work with the city on an aggressive revitalization campaign in six Richmond neighborhoods.

Because community involvement is necessary to the success of redevelopment, RRHA's Real Estate and Community Development Department works closely with community residents and other partners.

Funding for RRHA's conservation and redevelopment programs comes from the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (Virginia HUD office), and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, which the city of Richmond makes available under the federal Housing and Community Development Act, local lenders and other government agencies.
