WHAT IS THE
RACINE REVITALIZATION PARTNERSHIP?

Our mission is to build a better Racine through the social, physical, and economic revitalization of our neighborhoods.

RRP BACKGROUND

THE TIME IS NOW

COMPREHENSIVE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

BUILD, REHABILITATE, IMPROVE, TEACH, RENOVATE, ENGAGE, TRAIN, COUNSEL, MANAGE, CREATE.

The Partnership is a new collaborative nonprofit Community Development Corporation. Our mission is to build a better Racine through the social, physical, and economic revitalization of our neighborhoods.

In addition to being a Community Development Corporation, The Partnership will also meet the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) definition of a Community Housing and Development Organization (CHDO). Currently Racine does not have an organization meeting this definition, and due to regulatory mandates this will result in the City not being able to utilize a significant proportion of HUD funding. More importantly, there are a substantial number of other grant and tax credit opportunities the community forgoes because Racine does not have an organization with the sole purpose of engaging in comprehensive neighborhood revitalization.

The City of Racine, recognizing these forgone opportunities, began convening potential partners to form a CDC nearly two years ago.

Those discussions led to The Partnership’s collective impact model to coordinate and leverage participating partners’ resources more effectively. The organizations of the Partnership include the Continuum of Care for the City and County of Racine, U.A. (CoC), Great Lakes Community Conservation Corps (GLCCC), Homeless Assistance Leadership Organization, Inc. (HALO), Housing Resources Incorporated (HRI), Racine County Economic Development Corporation (RCEDC), Racine Housing and Neighborhood Partnership, Inc. (RHNP), and Racine Neighborhood Watch, Inc. (RNW).

Each nonprofit organization will appoint two board members, one of which must be a “low income community representative”. This requirement ensures the organization has input from the community it intends to serve.

In addition to one representative from both the City and County, up to five additional Board of Director seats will be made available to businesses and organizations that will make a meaningful contribution to The Partnership.

OUR GOALS

Security: Safe, clean, and attractive neighborhoods
