The relocation program of the Redevelopment Agency of the City and County of San Francisco (Agency) and Central Relocation Services (CRS) is handled by Agency employees.
Central Relocation Services was created by the Board of Supervisor in 1968 to serve as a single source for assuring compliance with applicable Federal, State and local relocation regulations.
On a day-to-day basis, CRS provides technical rehousing assistance, administers benefits and provides counseling for households required to move by: (1) public supported actions; (2) emergencies such as fires; and (3) unsanitary and/or hazardous building conditions as cited by Department of Public Works (DPW) and Department of Public Health (DPH). Requests to CRS for relocation assistance also come from the Mayor"s Office of Special Projects for certain hardship cases.
Central Relocation Services has also provided relocation assistance and administered benefits for residents and businesses displaced by a number of City departments including City Real Estate, Park and Recreation, the Clean Water Treatment Project, Chief Administrative Office, the Rehabilitation Assistance Program (RAP) and the Mayor"s Office of Housing.
Central Relocation Services is administered by the Redevelopment Agency with a Manager to supervise both CRS and the Agency"s relocation program. The Agency's relocation program include providing relocation assistance and administering benefits to residential and business tenants displaced by Agency activities within the Redevelopment Project Areas. To date, approximately 11,000 individuals and families and over 2,600 businesses have received relocation assistance and benefits pursuant to provisions of the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 (as amended).
* Central Relocation is not the Certificate of Preference program. Relocation benefits for the Certificate of Preference program ended in the 1970's.
