Community Reinvestment Area

The Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) Program is an economic development tool administered by the Department of Planning & Community Development (DPCD) that provides real property tax exemptions for property owners who renovate existing or construct new buildings. CRAs are areas of land in which property owners can receive tax incentives for investing in real property improvements.
