Foreclosed Properties - Neighborhood Stabilization Programs (NSP)

Neighborhood Stabilization Program, 3rd Round
In 2010, Congress appropriated a third round of Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP3) funding through the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act). Avondale received $1,224,903 in NSP3 funding to assist in the redevelopment of foreclosed homes. To be eligible for the NSP3 funding, the City of Avondale completed an amendment to its 2010-2011 Annual Action Plan (NSP3 Amendment) and provided the general public a chance to review and comment on the NSP3 Amendment. Since the initial development of the NSP3 Plan Amendment, changes in the housing market necessitated additional amendments to expand the target areas, add redevelopment as an activity and to adjust the loan terms for homebuyer assistance.

Neighborhood Stabilization Program (Round 1)

The Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) was originally established in response to the crash of the housing market and the record number of home foreclosures across the nation through the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) of 2008. Title III (the Neighborhood Stabilization Program) of HERA of 2008 appropriated $2,466,039 to Avondale for assisting in the redevelopment of foreclosed homes. The Avondale City Council approved the use of NSP funds in its NSP Plan on November 17, 2008 which was subsequently amended on October 19, 2009. This amendment allowed for the inclusion of additional targeted neighborhoods and the reallocation of the rental rehabilitation funds to homebuyer assistance. More information on the progress of the City’s NSP program can be found on the Quarterly Performance Reports (QPR) below.
