Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program

The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) is a Commonwealth grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational, and historical improvement projects. RACP projects are authorized in the Redevelopment Assistance section of a Capital Budget Itemization Act, have a regional or multi-jurisdictional impact, and generate substantial increases or maintain current levels of employment, tax revenues, or other measures of economic activity. RACP projects are state-funded projects that cannot obtain primary funding under other state programs.

New Procedures to Apply for RACP Grant Funding 
The Wolf Administration, as part of its commitment to a “Government that works,” has enhanced and streamlined the RACP grant submission procedures, while maintaining the primary tenets of the program.  Starting with the next Round, Candidates will submit an Electronic Application (e-RACP Application) to apply for RACP grant funds.  E-RACP Applications can only be submitted during an Open Funding Round. The new process will alleviate the time and funding burden associated with the prior business plan submission procedures.  Please be advised that Round 2015/1 & 1A has been finalized. If you have not received an award in 2016, you will need to re-apply during a future open window for grant consideration.
