Denver, CO (June 22, 2012) – Early results of the first comprehensive economic impact analysis of a redevelopment and housing authority were presented today at the National Association of  Real Editors Annual Meeting in Denver. 


The study examines how specific Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority (NRHA) projects or services affect the larger local economy in the way of jobs, income, output, capital investment, property values and tax revenue.


Ed Ware, NRHA Director of Marketing and Communications, explained that so far the study has measured the impact of redevelopment, Housing Choice Voucher program and assisted-rental housing. 


A research team from The College of William and Mary Mason School of Business are conducting the study which is expected to be completed by fall 2012.
