Thousands of Resources, Ready to help.
RRC Technical Assistance (RRC TA) Match Funding is a resource available to eligible communities actively engaged in Redevelopment Ready Communities. RRC may provide funding support for various projects needed to reach or maintain the RRC Essentials or RRC Certified designation. While exact investment parameters may vary based on numerous factors, RRC TA match funding can cover up to 75% of a project's cost with the remaining amount coming directly from the community or its partners.
This page provides an overview of the program. For full details, please see the RRC TA Match Funding Guide.
In order to apply for funding, a community must meet five key thresholds:
Unsure if your community is eligible to apply? Contact the Community Planner for your region to talk it through. Eligibility to make a request does not guarantee funding. Projects are approved on a case-by-case basis and consider other factors such as cost, local match, capacity, competitiveness compared to other projects requesting funding, etc.
RRC TA match funding can be used to help a community cover the cost of professional services for most items identified as red/yellow in its RRC baseline report. Examples include (but are not limited to):
All RRC TA match funded projects are expected to result in deliverables which meet the Certified expectations, even if the community has declared its intent to achieve Essentials level.
Communities who have achieved the RRC Essentials or RRC Certified designation may continue to request RRC TA Match for enhanced or implementation-focused projects. See the RRC TA Match Funding Guide for more details.
RRC TA Match Funding is available in varying amounts depending on which RRC designation a community is pursuing. Under current parameters, communities pursuing RRC Essentials may request up to $30,000 in funding and communities pursuing RRC Certified best practices may request up to $40,000. Communities who are already RRC Essentials or RRC Certified may also request funding to maintain and enhance their planning, zoning and development efforts. More details are available in the RRC TA Match Funding Guide.
RRC seeks to make the process for TA Match funding to be as streamlined as possible while also ensuring the team has the information it needs to fully assess requests. In general, the process is comprised of 8 steps from the initial request to project completion. The length of the process varies depending on the type of project, how a community selects a provider and other factors. RRC team decisions are issued weekly on Mondays and completed request forms must be submitted for team review at least two business days prior to that Monday.
