The New Jersey Urban Redevelopment Act created the New Jersey Redevelopment Authority (NJRA) in 1996 to spearhead the economic development efforts in New Jersey's urban communities. The NJRA became operational in April 1997 and began focusing on investing in neighborhood-based redevelopment projects. Through the New Jersey Redevelopment Act, the NJRA has also assumed the assets and liabilities of the former Urban Development Corporation.

The Authority offers:

  • low and no interest loans
  • equity investments loan guarantees
  • technical assistance

The NJRA partners with community-based organizations, developers and businesses to leverage its resources to formulate and develop redevelopment projects to increase economic opportunities in 67 eligible communities. The NJRA's primary interest is to ensure that projects developed are urban-focused, neighborhood-based and investment-driven. The NJRA's commitment to projects goes well beyond financing. The NJRA is taking a comprehensive approach to economic development opportunities that are "Creative Community Investments."
