Overview

The Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) was established for the purpose of stabilizing communities that have suffered from foreclosures and abandonment. NSP is a component of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). The CDBG regulatory structure is the platform used to implement NSP and the HOME program provides a safe harbor for NSP affordability requirements. NSP grantees must use at least 25 percent of the funds appropriated for the purchase and redevelopment of abandoned or foreclosed homes or residential properties that will be used to house individuals or families whose incomes do not exceed 50 percent of the area median income. In addition, all activities funded by NSP must benefit low- and moderate-income persons whose income does not exceed 120 percent of area median income.

 
Eligible Uses

NSP funds may be used for only the activities listed below:
  1. Establish financing mechanisms for purchase and redevelopment of foreclosed homes and residential properties;
  2. Purchase and rehabilitate homes and residential properties abandoned or foreclosed in order to sell, rent, or redevelop such homes;
  3. Establish land banks for foreclosed homes;
  4. Demolish blighted structures;
  5. Redevelop demolished or vacant properties
