Originally formed to undertake large scale urban renewal projects in the 1960's, the Amsterdam Urban Renewal Agency now facilitates a broad range of community renewal and investment projects in the City of Amsterdam.
Urban renewal investment projects include: neighborhood revitalization and housing rehabilitation programs, Main Street revitalization, waterfront, and public works projects throughout the City of Amsterdam. If you have any questions about specific programs or want to learn how the Amsterdam Urban Renewal Agency can help, contact us.
The Urban Renewal Agency is charged with one of the most important revitalization tasks, that of administering grants as well as writing grants for the City of Amsterdam.
