RACPThe Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) grant program is managed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Office of the Budget (OB) for economic development projects throughout the state. RACP grant awards are issued by the Commonwealth and passed through a municipality or a public authority. In the City of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Authority for Industrial Development (PAID) serves as the Applicant/Grantee and acts as an intermediary between the OB and the project that ultimately receives the funds. Each year, approximately $125 million of Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program Grant funding will be available for eligible capital projects. In 2013 PIDC administered 20 Grants for a total of $28 million. Please see the 2015 schedule below:
