Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2
The Neighborhood Stabilization Program2 (NSP2) was established to stabilize neighborhoods whose viability has been and continues to be damaged by the economic effects of properties that have been foreclosed upon and abandoned. NSP2, a term that references the NSP funds authorized by Title XII of Division A of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, (the Recovery Act) provides grants to states, local governments, nonprofits and a consortium of public and or private nonprofit entities on a competitive basis.
NSP Resource Exchange
NSP Resource Exchange is a one-stop shop for the information and resources needed by NSP grantees, subrecipients and developers to purchase, rehabilitate, and resell foreclosed properties. There are three primary components to the Resource Exchange site including:
Find a Resource - a database of policy guidance, practitioner support tools and training materials developed by HUD and technical assistance providers who specialize in NSP-related activities. It can be browsed by topic, audience, or type of information.
Ask a Question a feature that can be used to direct users to previously asked questions based on the user's questions. It also provides users with a question form that can be submitted electronically for those questions and answers that are not listed on the website.
Request TA a mechanism by which users can communicate with technical assistance providers and request support in implementing NSP activities
The NSP Resource Exchange can also be used to learn about upcoming events related to NSP and coming soon the site will feature tool kits for designing programs and implementing activities.
Selection of NSP2 Grantees
On January 14, 2010, HUD awarded a combined total $1.93 billion in NSP 2 grants to 56 grantees nationwide. This includes 33 consortiums at a regional level and four national consortiums carrying out activities in target areas throughout the country. These grantees were selected on the basis of foreclosure needs in their selected target areas, recent past experience, program design and compliance with NSP2 rules.
A request for debriefing must be made in writing or by email by the authorized official whose signature appears on the SF-424 or by his or her successor, and be submitted to the NSP Team. Information provided during a debriefing will include, at a minimum, the final score the applicant received for each rating factor, final evaluator comments for each rating factor, and the final assessment indicating the basis on which assistance was provided or denied.
