Please join Bishop C. Matthew Hudson and James Bunn of Congress Heights Main Streets as we learn the significance of a Community Benefits Agreement.  
 
Definition:
 
Community Benefits Agreement ("CBA") in the USA is acontract signed by community groups and a real estate developer that requires the developer to provide specific amenities and/or mitigations to the local community or neighborhood. In exchange, the community groups agree to publicly support the project, or at least not oppose it. Often, negotiating a CBA relies heavily upon the formation of a multi-issue, broad based community coalition including community, environmental, faith-based and labor organizations.
