The Florida Redevelopment Association brings together professionals from around the state who are involved in preserving and improving Florida’s communities. Founded in 1974 to promote redevelopment and growth of downtowns, the original base was Businesses and Downtown Development Authorities. The focus was later broadened to encompass Community Redevelopment Agencies and Main Street Programs. Today, the FRA also includes consultants, vendors, non-profit organizations, developers and other redevelopment entities. Our goal is to be a comprehensive association for all players in Florida’s urban revitalization network.We invite you to join the FRA! Do you want to share the great things you are doing statewide? Learn what others are doing?
Our mission is to get the great word out about economic/redevelopment in Florida. Remember, all the people who work for your organization are eligible for the benefits.
