ERA Initiatives

The Erie Redevelopment Authority has been and continues to be an integral partner to the City of Erie by executing programs to relieve instances of blight and improve the City’s residential and commercial neighborhoods.  The Authority administers multiple housing rehabilitation programs to assist qualifying homeowners with maintaining and improving their properties.  Targeted blight removal is conducted on an on-going basis to make neighborhoods safer and to preserve property values.  Additionally, ERA operates a Lead Hazard Control Program throughout Erie County to assist families and property owners with addressing lead-based paint hazards in pre-1978 housing.
