Neighborhood Enhancement Program (NEP)

The NEP program provides MSHDA funding statewide for activities directly tied to stabilization and enhancement of Michigan neighborhoods by nonprofit 501(c)3 agencies. 

The NEP program’s primary goals are to identify and fund innovative activities to address a neighborhood’s specific needs; assist and then showcase Michigan neighborhood(s) where people are engaged and facilitating change; and to provide funding to facilitate and implement activities.   

The NEP program can financially assist high-impact, innovative, neighborhood housing-oriented activities that benefit low and moderate income areas and residents.  There are three eligible neighborhood components: 1) Beautification; 2) Neighborhood Public Amenity Enhancements; and 3) Housing Enhancements to owner-occupied single-family homes.  All three components are designed to fund tangible housing-oriented activities that are:  implementation ready; highly visible; impactful to the neighborhood and resident’s qualify of life; holistically/community focused; and where there is buy-in and demonstrated support within the neighborhood and community.
