The Richfield Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) was created in 1975 to assure the long-term vitality of Richfield's residential and commercial property. It uses federal, state, and local funds to create and administer programs that encourage investment in Richfield. The HRA consists of five board members who are nominated by the Mayor and approved by the City Council, serving staggered five-year terms. The City Manager serves as Executive Director, while Community Development Department staff manage the programs.
The HRA holds monthly meetings on the 3rd Monday at 7:00 p.m. at the Municipal Center. Meetings are broadcast LIVE on government access cable Ch. 16.
The HRA has a separate budget from the City of Richfield. Each year, the budget is approved by the HRA, with the approval of an amended budget at the half-year mark.
The HRA has implemented a number of programs build new and to remodel existing homes. To learn more, click here.
The Richfield HRA encourages investment in commercial areas of the City. The HRA acquires and removes poor quality commercial property then contracts with private developers for the construction of contemporary retail and office space. The HRA also supports upgrades and remodeling of commercial properties.
