2019-2020 NEIGHBORHOOD STABILIZATION PROGRAM ACTION PLANS
The City of San Bernardino is an entitlement jurisdiction that received Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) funds through the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The City received approximately $11,685,000 from two rounds of funding.
As a condition to receiving these funds, the City must provide notification of how the City intends to invest these federal funds to stabilize the City’s neighborhoods and stem the decline of property values. The amendments are for the inclusion of Eligible Use E for both Neighborhood Stabilization Program 1(NSP1) and Neighborhood Stabilization Program 3 (NSP 3) which allows funding for projects involving new construction.
The amendment of the NSP1 plan adds the Eastpointe Village Intentional Community project for $300,000 in predevelopment costs. The end use for this project is the development of approximately 30 single family owner occupied units on vacant lots located in the general area of Arden/Guthrie. A second proposed project for the NSP1 plan is up to $550,000 in predevelopment costs for the development of approximately 75 multi-family units on 4 acres of park land currently part of Seccombe Lake Park.
