About the Redevelopment Authority
 
The Redevelopment Authority was formed in 1961 under Pennsylvania’s Urban Redevelopment Law. Its mission is to eliminate blight and dangerous conditions. The Authority is authorized by the Board of County Commissioners and operates independently. Building a vibrant community, through eliminating blight and dangerous conditions is a collaborative effort. The Authority is in partnership with County government and local municipalities, Pennsylvania state agencies, area non-profits, and community groups. Our focus is to locate and support economic development opportunities for business owners and developers, as well as to assist local businesses with obtaining the capital they seek to invest and expand.
 
In the past 50-plus years, the Redevelopment Authority has played an important part in helping to make Berks County a great place to live, work and play. It has worked in everything from flood recovery efforts to management of the County’s federal entitlement housing and community development programs. It fulfills its role in the County’s community revitalization, using tools and funding programs administered by federal, state and local government agencies.
