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.

Procedures to Apply for RACP Grant Funding 

The Wolf Administration, as part of its commitment to a “Government that works,” enhanced and streamlined the RACP grant submission procedures, while maintaining the primary tenets of the program.  Consistent with this level of effort, Candidates will continue to submit an Electronic Application (e-RACP Application) to apply for RACP grant funds during future Open Funding Rounds. 

The Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) is updating 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/Logon.net 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.

Be sure to reference the step-by-step instructions provided for completing the online e-RACP Application.

NOTICE:  Please note that if you received an award PRIOR to Round 2017/1, you should utilize the Application Handbook to prepare and send to the Office of Budget your formal post-award application to start your grant process. For awards received in our Round 2017/1 and later, use the Application and Business Plan Handbook for this purpose.
