Local governments are often presented with the financial challenge of removing abandoned, dilapidated or even burned structures. For over 35 years, our agency’s Residential Redevelopment program has provided funding to demolish dilapidated residential structures and blight within the agency’s service area to pave the way for a cleaner, healthier environment, more attractive communities and new construction.
