The NEP program can financially assist high-impact, innovative, neighborhood housing-oriented activities that benefit low and moderate income areas and residents. All 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.

The next funding round is anticipated to be announced in August 2021 for neighborhood implementation in 2022. If an agency is interested in being placed on the notification e-mail list they should send the request to firstname.lastname@example.org
