Neighborhood Pride Program


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.
NPP projects are funded from the City's annual allocation of Community Development Block Grant funds. The City of Carson receives CDBG funds from HUD as authorized under Title 1 of the Housing and community Act 1974, Public Law 93383, as amended; 42 U.S.C. - 5301 et seq. Funds for the NPP are approved by the City Council each year as part of the City's Annual HUD Action Plan process and in conjunction with the City's annual budgeting process.

The NPP will provide three percent (3%) 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. Any loan over the $25,000 limit must be approved by the City Manager not to exceed $50,000, (ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS).

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 $20,000 for single-family detached residential properties, and a maximum of $15,000 for mobile homes. 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 determined by the program inspector. 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.
