The Redevelopmen Ready Communities (RRC) program is currently accepting applications from communities seeking to achieve redevelopment ready certification status. The RRC certification signals your community has worked hard to make reinvestment easy! Selected communities will receive an in-depth assessment, report of findings and support for implementation of recommended strategies needed to achieve certification. The evaluation measures a community to the six RRC best practices. Certification is awarded once a community demonstrates all best practice components have been met. Application for the RRC program can be found HERE. Completed applications including required materials are due by 5:00pm, February 8, 2013. Please review the application for further information. Any questions should be directed to RRC@michigan.org.
