Neighborhood Stabilization Program

Congress created the Neighborhood Stabilization Program to help cities, counties and states deal with community problems that are the result of the mortgage foreclosure crisis in the nation. HUD provides money to local governments (cities and counties), nonprofits, and all 50 states. HUD has allocated $6.82 billion to 307 NSP1 grantees, 56 NSP2 grantees, and 270 NSP3 grantees.

Florida grantees received $541,364,780 in NSP1 funding. NSP2 recipients were awarded $347,612,500 and Florida NSP3 grantees were awarded $208,437,144. NSP1 and NSP2 grants were awarded based on a formula and NSP2 grants were competitively based. Throughout Florida, NSP partners are acquiring and rehabilitating foreclosed and abandoned properties that are being sold or rented to low- and moderate-income households. Blighted units are being demolished and community facilities are being developed in some of the abandoned buildings.

Throughout the process, the Florida Housing Coalition is helping grantees and their partners with workshops, clinics, and off-site technical assistance. The Florida Housing Coalition’s Annual Conference features a full NSP track and a special NSP Roundtable where HUD officials and program administrators lead an interactive discussion on the program.

Contact the Coalition for technical assistance at 850-878-3219 or email: info@flhousing.org or request help from HUD through the HUD NSP Resource Center.
