The focus of the Redevelopment Authority of the County of Westmoreland (RACW) is on reenergizing the county’s core communities and enticing new business, residential, and recreational opportunities. By working closely with community leaders and volunteers, the RACW assists in community revitalization efforts and implements a multitude of programs that are designed and intended to remove blight and improve conditions for low-to-moderate income residents throughout Westmoreland County. Also, the RACW partners with local government and non-profit entities to implement impact projects in the county.
