Pensacola CRA Announces Pause on Residential Property Improvement Program Applications
The City of Pensacola Community Redevelopment Agency has temporarily paused the acceptance of new Residential Property Improvement Program applications in all districts to allow the program to transition to a new management software and to address excessive wait times in some of the districts.
Due to the large influx of applications, a new software system known as Neighborly will be employed to more efficiently manage program applications and data beginning in early 2024. Once the new software has launched, the application cycle will reopen for districts with estimated wait times of two years or less. Districts with estimated wait times exceeding two years will remain closed and reopen once wait times are reduced to two years or less.
The CRA’s Residential Resiliency Program will not close and will remain open through the transition period and any RPIP closures.
In 2018, the CRA launched the RPIP which was designed to support the preservation and creation of affordable housing, preservation and enhancement of traditional neighborhood character, blight elimination and prevention, and preservation and enhancement of the tax base.
To learn more about the RPIP, visit cityofpensacola.com/CRAPrograms. Openings and closures will be posted to the CRA Programs page and announced via press release and the city’s Facebook page. During periods of closure, interested property owners can also sign up to be notified when the cycle reopens by completing the registration form on the CRA Programs page.
