Mid City Redevelopment Alliance was founded by the Baton Rouge General in the fall of 1991. As the first not-for-profit organization in Baton Rouge created to address the challenges of a specific geographic region, Mid City Redevelopment Alliance has established itself as one of the most dynamic and successful community development organizations in our city.


We practice comprehensive community development through the prioritization of people and place. Collaboration is central to the work, and is enhanced by diverse relationships supported by a mixed array of resources advancing a multi-tiered community revitalization process. MCRA strives to provide all members of the community an opportunity to share in the benefits of revitalization. The organization is committed to empowering individuals and neighborhoods to effect impactful and sustainable change from within the community.
