Building & Site Improvement Grant Program

The St. Cloud Community Redevelopment Agency "CRA" seeks to encourage economic development while acting as a catalyst to eliminate blight and decline.

Tax Increment Financing

We do this through the use of a special funding tool, called Tax Increment Financing or "TIF" that helps the CRA invest in projects, including the redevelopment of key areas within our city; like infrastructure and streetscape improvements, building and site improvement and more.

Helping the Community

By providing a tool for small business and property owners to make improvements the CRA is helping to address physical decline within our city.

The Community Redevelopment Agency "CRA" does this by providing matching grants that can help alleviate the financial burden of revitalization and beautification that property owners face.

Working, hand in hand with property owners the CRA’s goal is to help in the revitalization of our city and to improve conditions in once thriving corridors, neighborhoods and business districts.
