The City of Elkhart is the recipient of $1,022,717 in funds through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP3).  To access these funds the City must submit a plan in the form of a significant amendment to the current Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Annual Action Plan. 


The City of Elkhart evaluated data provided by HUD to determine the area of greatest need as required by the NSP.  This review indicated the area of greatest need is consistent with the existing Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA) currently used by the City for distribution of funds through the CDBG program with a minor boundary change (map available in draft plan).  By focusing limited NSP resources in this area, the City will continue building on existing programs and improving services to the low-mod-middle income neighborhoods.


The NSP eligible activities that will be undertaken by the City are:

  • Purchase and rehabilitate homes and residential properties
  • Land Banking
  • Demolish blighted structures
  • Redevelop demolished or vacant properties. 


The NSP program requires that a minimum of twenty-five percent of the funds (approximately $256,000) be used to provide housing opportunities for individuals or families whose incomes do not exceed fifty percent of area median income.
