Neighborhood Homes Program

Program (?) Neighborhood Homes Program
Abbreviation NHP
Program Description

The Neighborhood Homes Program (NHP) transferred occupied, city-owned one- to four-family residential buildings to selected community-based sponsors for rehabilitation and eventual sale to owner occupants. Non-profit sponsors received an evaporating loan from HPD and a construction loan from Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), the Enterprise Foundation, or a conventional lender to rehabilitate the building. Tenants that lived in the building prior to the program had the opportunity to purchase program homes before non-tenants. To qualify for the purchase of the home, households must have demonstrated an ability to qualify for mortgage financing and be committed to residing in the renovated home for a minimum of 10 years.
