The Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency was created to ensure the ongoing development of affordable housing and to continuously fuel community redevelopment projects in the city and county of Sacramento. We meet these goals by creating safer neighborhoods and a more robust economy, so individuals, families and children in our community have the opportunity for a better life. Our work has been recognized among the best in the country by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and others. Every day, our team of over 200 employees secures funding, battles for support, organizes our partners and engages the Sacramento community in a proactive collaboration to change lives. For information on SHRA’s governing boards, refer to this link. We focus our efforts on four main areas to achieve our mission.
