Enterprise Community Partners will host “Rebuilding Neighborhoods: Innovative Solutions for a Post-NSP World,” Tuesday, December 4, 2012, 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM.
The city of Cleveland has been hit hard by the foreclosure crisis. In many neighborhoods home prices have fallen by more than half since 2005 and nearly 16,000 properties sit vacant and blighted. The availability of HUD Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) funding provided a brief but welcome solution to some of these problems. However, with that resource fading, what is the way forward in a post-NSP world?
Now, more than ever, creative vacant housing redevelopment strategies are needed to reverse decline and rebuild damaged markets. This webinar will highlight the approach of two local community development organizations, Slavic Village Development and the Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization, who are experimenting with novel approaches to housing renovation that requires little or no subsidy. Joined by Frank Ford from Neighborhood Progress Inc, this discussion is sure to offer inspiration for organizations across the country as we retool to face similar challenges in our own neighborhoods.
