    What is a Community Redevelopment Area or District?
    Under Florida law (Chapter 163, Part III), local governments are able to designate areas as Community Redevelopment Areas when certain conditions exist. Since all the monies used in financing CRA activities are locally generated, CRAs are not overseen by the state, but redevelopment plans must be consistent with local government comprehensive plans.

    What is a Community Redevelopment Agency?

The Board can be comprised of local government officials and or other individuals appointed by the local government. Each district must maintain separate trust funds, and expend those funds only in that district. [LEARN MORE]

FRA Regional Meetings


Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) Basics Training

The Florida Redevelopment Association (FRA) is hosting three regional meetings over the next month designed to bring CRA Basics Training to elected and appointed officials and practitioners throughout the state. We will cover the basic responsibilities and rules for Board members, as well as the laws on expenditures, reporting, projects and open government. This is an opportunity for CRA board members, elected and appointed, to be educated on CRA issues, for very little cost, right at home. Space is limited, so we recommend you sign up soon. The dates and locations are: June 12 in Jacksonville, June 14 in Mount Dora, and June 26 in Fort Myers.  Click on the links below for agendas and registration information or call Carol Westmoreland at 850-570-7206.
