NeighborWorks Congratulates Its Local Organizations on Stabilization Funding

Today NeighborWorks America announced that 19 local NeighborWorks organizations, along with their local, regional, and state partners, were awarded $548,381,663, or 27 percent of the total $1.93 billion awarded in the second round of Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The NeighborWorks organizations received the funding as part of consortium partnerships with state and local government offices, the private sector, and other nonprofits in their communities, and will build on the stabilization efforts already underway in many communities. Stabilization efforts include acquisition, rehabilitation or demolition of vacant or abandoned foreclosed properties, and/or financial assistance to low- to middle-income homebuyers to purchase foreclosed properties.
