Brockton Redevelopment Authority
The Brockton Redevelopment Authority (BRA) is a quasi-public agency contracted by the City of Brockton, whose main mission is community development and economic revitalization, specifically for the benefit of low- and moderate-income households and areas of Brockton. The BRA works with the Mayor, the Planning Department, and other city departments to develop and achieve a strategic development vision. The BRA also works in partnership with other organizations like the Brockton 21st Century Corporation, Metro South Chamber of Commerce, private businesses, and developers to further the strategic development vision.
As part of the BRA’s contract with the City of Brockton, it manages the city’s housing and community development funds, US Department of Energy (DOE) funding, and US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funding. These resources include Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), and Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program. The principal purpose of the funding is to improve the lives of low- and moderate-income Brockton residents through economic development, affordable housing, and social program.
