Hello, my name is Sean D. Schafer and as the Chairman of the Redevelopment Authority of the County of Bucks it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.  The Redevelopment Authority was created in 1962,  empowered by Act 385, more commonly known as the “Urban Redevelopment Law”. The Redevelopment Authority assists municipalities, businesses, private developers, and homeowners located in the County of Bucks, in the rehabilitation of blighted and deteriorated properties and reuse of abandoned or unused commercial and industrial sites.

If you are a business we can help with numerous different projects such as expanding your space, growing your work force, helping with environmental problems,  and helping to purchase property. Low interest loans are available as well as possible tax credits and grant funding.

If you are a Bucks County municipality, we can help you redevelop vacant or underutilized industrial and commercial sites, restore vacant blighted property, return tax delinquent property to a tax-paying state, revitalize deteriorated areas and oversee and apply for state and federal grants.

We are proud of what we do at the Redevelopment Authority so please, explore our website to find out more about our projects and programs. If you have any questions, comments or would like to discuss how the Redevelopment Authority can assist your business or community, please do not hesitate to give our office a call.
