PROGRAM SUMMARY

The Neighborhood Pride Program (NPP) is designed to assist low- and moderate-income owners of single-family detached dwellings and mobilehomes with the preservation of decent, safe and sanitary housing. The NPP corrects hazardous structural conditions, makes improvements considered necessary to eliminate blight, promotes the construction of healthy, sustainable and resource-efficient housing, improves disabled access, and corrects building, and health and safety code violations.

Program funds may be used to complete required and approved housing rehabilitation construction repair activities and addressing lead-based paint hazards, and includes all Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) eligible project-related soft costs, including but not limited to, hazardous materials testing fees, title fees, and document recordation fees.
SOURCE OF FUNDS
NPP projects are funded from the City's annual allocation of Community Development Block Grant funds. The City receives CDBG funds from the federal government. Funds for the NPP are approved by the City Council.

The NPP will provide three percent deferred loans which will be made available to eligible households whose income does not exceed the 80% of Area Median Income adjusted for household size by HUD guidelines. Program loans may be up to $25,000.

Alternatively, the NPP can provide a program grant to eligible households whose income does not exceed the 80% of area median income adjusted for household size. A program grant may not exceed $10,000 for single-family detached residential properties, and a maximum of $7.500 for mobilehomes. NPP grants are approved by the Housing Committee.

Eligible applicants may only receive either a program grant or a program loan, but not both, except as outlined for emergency repairs.. There is a limit of one program loan or one program grant per eligible applicant. In instances where a NPP loan or NPP grant has been provided, and the maximum loan or maximum grant limit has not been utilized, re-application for the balance of the residual program maximum amount is not allowed.
