Developer Community Benefits

Legally binding contract negotiated between various community entities. In community development, a community benefit agreement (CBA) is generally between a developer and coalition representing community members impacted by the development. The developer agrees to provide certain benefits in exchange for community support for a specific project. Benefits often include provisions such as funding for affordable housing repair programs or workforce development agreements.
