Setting the Stage for Neighborhood Redevelopment

The federally-funded Neighborhood Stabilization Program has been combating a challenging housing market that affects neighborhoods across large sections of Chicago. Its primary focus is on areas of the South, West and North sides that are serving as catalysts for revitalization of areas around them. The program has helped neighborhoods minimize the damage and initiated recovery.

By creating high-quality, energy efficient housing and arranging for tiered subsidies based on income levels and neighborhoods, the program has re-ignited local markets, locked in affordability for buyers and renters, and supported local economic development and job growth, creating more than 3306 jobs. It has helped launch increased local confidence, protect recent and planned investments and set the stage for a turn around in local markets and an upsurge in private redevelopment. The City of Chicago's Micro Market Recovery Program and community partners are now building upon these successes.  

This video shows shows how the NSP Chicago program has helped to change lives, restore hope, and rebuild communities.
