RPC Seeking New Home for Future Operations

RPC Seeking New Home for Future Operations

The RPC has resided alongside Champaign County government offices for the past 25 years at the Brookens Administrative Center. County Offices are relocating to the Bennett Administrative Center and the RPC is looking for its new home.

Planning for the Future


  • Identify new space to serve clients
  • Leasing from a for-profit entity can significantly add to operating costs because of property taxes
  • Prohibited form owning property by statute
  • 90% of funding is grant pass-through, limiting funding available for space acquisition
  • The lack of secure space does not provide stability


  • Explore legislative change to allow for property ownership
  • Identify space that meets the RPC's needs
  • Identify funding to purchase and renovate property


  • Combine more services under one roof
  • Centrally locate in the community
  • 25,000 - 35,000 square feet
  • Secure space that keeps overhead costs low and directs the most grant funding possible to services


  • Stable and secure space for the future operation of the RPC
  • Continue providing quality services for thousands of people in our community every year
  • In 2023, the RPC served more than 16,000 clients through its Community Services (13,726), Workforce Development (1,595+), and Early Childhood Education (750+) divisions alone
