The San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, incorporated August 10, 1948, is  authorized and organized under the provisions of the California Community Redevelopment Law ("CCRL").  The Agency is an entity legally separate from the City and County of San Francisco, but existing solely to perform certain functions exclusively for and by authorization of the City and County of San Francisco. The Agency operates primarily in redevelopment project areas designated by the Board of Supervisors.  In accordance with CCRL, the Agency works to improve the environment of the City and create better urban living conditions through the removal of blight.


Seven Commissioners appointed by the Mayor and approved by the Board of Supervisors govern the Agency. The Commission makes all policy determinations for the implementation of the Agency's programs. The Executive Director is charged with implementing all activities authorized in redevelopment plans and for other special projects in accordance with policies defined by the Commission. The Commission also serves as the official advisory body for the disbursement of San Francisco’s affordable housing funds.


Redevelopment Agency activities generally function in either “project” or “survey” areas (although SFRA can, and has undertaken projects such as the development of affordable housing throughout the City).  A project area is a designated redevelopment area. Relocation assistance is provided to residents and business owners displaced by redevelopment activities. A survey area is an area under study to determine the feasibility of a redevelopment project designation.
