Community Revitalization Plans

If Applicant desires to be considered under the State Special Project Set-Aside, Applicant must submit a copy of the concerted community revitalization plan (“CCRP”) approved by the Local Government with jurisdiction over the land on which the Project is situated, if applicable. When evaluating the CCRP, ADOH will consider the extent to which the CCRP:

1. is geographically specific and provides a clear direction for implementation;

2. includes a strategy for applying for or obtaining commitments of public and private investment in non-housing infrastructure, amenities, or services beyond the Project;

3. demonstrates the need for revitalization;

4. is providing other new benefits to the area inside the geographically specific boundaries of the area being revitalized under the CCRP (such as jobs, transportation, commercial amenities, child care centers, healthcare centers, educational facilities, and safe open spaces);

5. includes the solicitation of input from community residents and other stakeholders in the creation of the CCRP.
