Agency properties are acquired in the name of the Land Reutilization Authority (LRA), the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority (LCRA), and the Planned Industrial Expansion Authority (PIEA). In addition, SLDC, through the LRA, manages, maintains, markets, and sells agency-owned vacant and abandoned buildings and property. LRA has the authority to carry out these functions through the Missouri Revised Statutes, Chapter 92, Section 92.875
