Allegheny Regional Asset District

For over 25 years, the Allegheny Regional Asset District – RAD – has invested in Allegheny County's quality of life through financial support of libraries, parks and trails, arts and cultural organizations, regional attractions, sports and civic facilities, and public transit.

With half of the proceeds from Allegheny County's additional one percent sales and use tax, RAD has invested more than $2 billion in our regional assets since its inception. An additional $2 billion has gone directly to the County and its 128 municipalities for property tax relief and local government services. RAD is a time-tested solution that works for the economy, for assets, for citizens, for municipalities – for all. RAD works here.
