RRC Technical Assistance (RRC TA) match funding is a resource available to eligible communities who are actively engaged in Redevelopment Ready Communities. RRC may provide funding support for various projects needed to reach or maintain certification. 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 RRC 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 standards, even if the community has declared its intent to achieve Essentials level.
Communities who are RRC Certified may continue to request support on a case-by-case basis for special 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 curent parameters, communities pursuring RRC Essentials may request up to $20,000 in funding and communities pursuing or maintaining RRC Certified best practices may request up to $30,000. 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 beginning to project completion. The length of the process can vary dramatically depending on the type of project, how a community selects a provider and other other factors. RRC team decisions are issued once a month on the last Monday and completed request forms must be submitted for team review at least two business days prior to that Monday.
