One of the Greater Cincinnati Redevelopment Authority’s most important roles is as a partner and resource available to all local governments and municipalities. We work with government leaders and economic development teams to create innovative and custom solutions aligned with community goals. We are an independent entity that can receive state and federal grants and loans; issue revenue bonds; acquire problem properties; and exercise powers on behalf of another subdivision. All of our real estate efforts are focused on “highest and best use” and consistency with the community’s plan.

 “The Greater Cincinnati Port Authority has always been an important partner for communities throughout Southwest Ohio.  The Urban Industrial Job Site Program is the latest example of this organization's commitment to creating project-ready sites that improve our region's competitiveness for business investment, strengthening our area as a true destination for industrial development.”
