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.

Procedures to Apply for RACP Grant Funding 

As part of the Wolf Administration's commitment to a Government that works, candidates will continue to submit an electronic application (e-RACP Application) to apply for RACP grant funds during an open funding round.  Please note that the e-RACP Application has changed slightly so be sure to reference the step-by-step instructions for completing the online submission process. 

The Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) has updated its Electronic Single Application (ESA) to use the new Commonwealth Keystone Login. Please note, effective December 20, 2019, all users that access DCED systems must use the Commonwealth Keystone Login to create new user accounts or merge existing PAlogin/ accounts.  You only need to migrate your old account if you require access to your application history. We strongly encourage all users who need to migrate their accounts to do so prior to any application deadlines to avoid last-minute technical difficulties.
