Relocation
And
Acquisition
16
Relocation and Acquisition
• The information in this webinar for Relocation
and Acquisition only applies to Economic
Development and RLF-ED funds
• If municipalities have received CDBG funds for
planning, public facilities or public facilities
economic development projects, then the
instructions in the Public Facilities
Implementation Manual apply
• URA is the Uniform Relocation and Real Property
Acquisition Act of 1970 as amended (49 CFR 24)
17
Relocation and Acquisition
• Difference is due to requirements for
governmental entity versus private entity
• Acquisitions by a non-public entity are
typically conducted without the threat of
eminent domain; however certain notification
procedures under URA must be followed
18
Relocation and Acquisition
• Acquisitions
– The UGLG/business notifies the owner in writing
of the property’s market value; and
– The UGLG/business notifies the owner prior to
making an offer, that it will not acquire property if
an amicable settlement cannot be reached
19
Relocation and Acquisition
• Relocation
– Takes place after the acquisition is complete
– The seller of property is not eligible for relocation
compensation
– Tenants may be eligible if they are to be displaced or
relocated
– If a homeowner, residential tenant, business (including
non-profits and farms) or business tenant will or may
potentially be displaced, the UGLG should ensure the
business provides the tenant with the applicable brochure
at the time of the initial contact (Wisconsin Relocation
Rights Residential or Wisconsin Relocation Rights for
Businesses, Farms and Non-profits)
