The Old City of Jerusalem Revitalization Program (OCJRP, O.C.J.R.P., J.R.P. or JRP) was begun in 1995 with primary funding from the Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development to renovate and restore major Arab historic and residential sites in the Old City of Jerusalem. The Program has been able to expand through funds raised for specific JRP projects. By encouraging the use of traditional materials and careful restoration techniques, the Program aims to influence local restoration practices as well as to improve the social and economic conditions for inhabitants. The Program is implemented by an interdisciplinary technical team of urban planners, architects and archeologists and uses the expertise of local craftsmen.
