Malden Redevelopment Authority
Created by state statute, the Malden Redevelopment Authority was established on October 8, 1958. On behalf of the City of Malden, the agency administers the federal Community Development Block Grant program, serves as the lead economic development agency in the City of Malden, administers low-interest loan and mortgage programs for owners of residential and commercial properties, manages many public works improvement projects and oversees the off-street parking program in the downtown.
The MRA is also the representative member of the North Suburban Consortium and administers federal home funding which aids in affordable housing and development. To learn more about the NSC and affordable housing opportunities, visit the NSC's website (www.northsuburbanconsortium.org).
It is important to the Malden Redevelopment Authority that the City enjoys economic vitality, strong and vibrant neighborhoods, collaborative and supportive private sector partners committed to future growth and the best quality of life possible for all of Malden's 59,000 plus residents. Utilizing federal, state and local resources, the purpose of the agency is to eliminate blight and blighting influences in neighborhoods and commercial centers, create employment opportunities for local residents, increase tax revenues to the City of Malden through sound economic development and create market rate and affordable housing opportunities for the benefit of the citizens of the City of Malden
