Neighborhood Stabilization Program

The Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) uses federal grant funds to buy, fix up, and resell foreclosed and abandoned homes. The Housing and Community Services staff assists in the implementation of the NSP by conducting inspections of foreclosed housing units, preparing cost estimates for applicable properties and overseeing the contracts for lead remediation and rehabilitation work.


THROUGH THIS PROGRAM, THE CITY WILL PROVIDE AT LEAST $1,000.00 FOR DOWN PAYMENT ASSISTANCE.

ASSISTANCE WILL BE IN THE FORM OF A SECOND MORTGAGE forgivable after 10 years.
