In 2015, our 43 RACP clients represented 17 percent of the requested dollar value of all RACP applications and have been granted 14 percent of the dollar value of awards for the entire state, or more than $40 million. ESI assisted clients across several counties including Philadelphia, Montgomery, Delaware, Erie, Mercer, Lawrence, Lebanon and Westmoreland. We helped them show the extent to which their project will positively impact the regional economic, cultural, civic and historical improvement and achieve the desired outcomes of the RACP program.


The Pennsylvania’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) is funded by bonds which are issued by the state every two to three years. RACP is administered by the Office of the Budget to support the acquisition and construction of major regional, economic, cultural, civic and historical improvement projects. Eligible projects must include a 50 percent match of non-state dollars. A new round of RACP funding should be announced sometime in early 2017. ESI can help by providing the impact numbers in support of the application and compiling the full application package for official submission. Take a look at our Solutions For RACP applicants or contact Andrea Mannino, our resident expert on RACP, for more information.
