The Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) is Helping Preserve Neighborhoods

A ribbon-cutting ceremony held on November 8, 2010 celebrated another victory in homeownership by a qualified homebuyer through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). The new proud home owner, Maria Guzman and her family of four, became the 28th Arlington family to benefit from this federally funded program endorsed by Congress and administered by the Arlington Housing Authority for the City of Arlington.

The NSP helps stimulate, preserve and enhance neighborhoods by eliminating vacant, foreclosed properties while providing homeownership possibilities for grateful families such as the Guzman’s. The program creates opportunities for refurbishing foreclosed properties into energy efficient homes as well as eliminating blighted properties sitting vacant.

Mayor Robert Cluck, Council members Robert Rivera and Lana Wolff, Deputy City Manager Trey Yelverton, new neighbors, representatives from the Arlington Housing Authority, and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development were present at this special event.
