ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (March 26, 2020) – The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) is working closely with the New Jersey State Office of Emergency Management, New Jersey Department of Health and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to expand hospital capacity in New Jersey by utilizing the Atlantic City Convention Center as one of three field hospital locations.
The CRDA is fully committed to supporting the state’s response efforts during this unprecedented public health emergency.
About the CRDA:
The only agency of its kind nationwide, the CRDA has used Atlantic City casino reinvestments as a catalyst for meaningful, positive improvement in the lives of New Jersey residents since 1984. Under the 2011 Tourism District Act, the Authority’s mission evolved from statewide projects to becoming the state’s key economic development agency for Atlantic City. CRDA’s expanded responsibilities now include land use regulation, tourism marketing and clean and safe initiatives. The CRDA also oversees Historic Boardwalk Hall (the leading entertainment venue of its size in the country) and the Atlantic City Convention Center. In total, CRDA has invested nearly $2 billion in more than 400 projects statewide, of which $1.8 billion has been invested in Atlantic City, spurring business investments and expansions, and creating permanent jobs in the process.
