Greensboro recognizes the importance of healthy neighborhoods to the overall economic well-being of the City. By targeting federal, state, and local resources in specific neighborhoods, the City has been able to address may issues of concern, from crime prevention and abandoned houses, to the development of parks and public facilities. Redevelopment has been a part of Greensboro's history for over 50 years. Learn more about our history here and about the role of the Redevelopment Commission of Greensboro (RCG) in this process.
Redevelopment Opportunities through RCG
RCG conducts studies, formulates plans, and carries through redevelopment projects for blighted areas in the City. Redevelopment projects can and usually do provide a variety of development opportunities for single family homes and multi-family housing, as well as occasionally providing opportunities for the development of parks, community buildings, and neighborhood commercial/retail spaces. Request for Proposals (RFP) or the Qualifications (RFQ) are issued on as as-needed basis. Other Housing Development Opportunities and Properties for Sale are available.
All projects must be carried out in full conformance with federal program rules that govern awarded funds, including the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG), and all applicable City contracting and development policies, including, but not limited to, the Minority and Women Business Enterprise Plan for Construction, Procurement and Professional Services. Additional eligibility requirements, if any, can be found in the RFP or RFQ for a specific project
