The Redevelopment Authority of the County of York (RACY) was formed in 1964 by the York County Commissioners as a vehicle specifically aimed to redevelop blighted industrial sites and to forge innovative strategies for redevelopment projects throughout York County.

The Role of RACY

RACY plays an integral role in rehabilitation projects by holding title to a property while it is being developed, securing grant and loan funding, or assisting with master planning and blight designation.

RACY has been involved in housing projects for the York Housing Authority, Habitat for Humanity and Adams-Hanover Counseling Services as well as redevelopment efforts in conjunction with York College and other private developers.

RACY can also serve as the Issuing Authority for Tax Increment Financing (TIF) projects as dictated by Urban Redevelopment Law.
