Program Design

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) established the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) to specifically provide targeted emergency assistance for state and local governments to acquire and redevelop foreclosed properties.

On Nov. 4, 2008, the Grand Prairie City Council approved the Housing and Neighborhood Services staff to submit an application for NSP funds. The city of Grand Prairie received a $2,267,290.00 grant to fund activities creating home ownership opportunities and stabilize neighborhoods through the acquisition and rehabilitation of foreclosed properties in Grand Prairie. The NSP funds will be used for the following programs:

4-Gov
