Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) 3, September 16, 2011 (Read Overview)

The Neighborhood Stabilization Program is a grant-funded program awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. This program will be administered locally by the City of Memphis Division of Housing and Community Development.
