Sacramento is a unique blend of many communities and neighborhoods each with their own distinct characteristics. Some are thriving while others are in need of an infusion of resources to help restore and sustain their vitality.

As an award-winning organization recognized nationally for best practices and innovation, the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency brings together funding resources and staff expertise to develop and implement creative strategies for affordable housing and community revitalization. We use these tools to help address housing and economic needs in low income communities and older commercial corridors in the City and County of Sacramento through effective community and business partnerships.
