Under this section, $3.92 billion is set aside to provide emergency assistance for the redevelopment of abandoned and foreclosed homes. Congress also indicated in the bill that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) would establish the formula allocation and fund “states and units of general local government with the greatest need, as such need is determined in the discretion of the Secretary”.

LHFA AND LOUISIANA OCD PARTNERS

On September 29, the Federal Register published and released HUD’s notice to implement its newly created program, Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). NSP will be regulated under HUD’s existing Community and Development Planning through Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). LHFA will develop the Action Plan through OCD, who will serve as the lead and responsible entity. OCD will monitor LHFA as it implements the NSP Action Plan.

NEW TERMINOLOGY

  • Low

  • 80-120% of median = Middle Income

  • CDBG Low/Mod benefit national objective criteria apply, except beneficiaries can be Low, Moderate and Middle Income

    Funding consideration

    Funding Consideration aggregating the costs of acquisition, rehabilitation and redevelopment

    • Provide funding set-asides for rehab and redevelopment projects (rental and homeowner) that did not receive a direct set -aside under the NSP as identified by HUD within their datasets:

    • Provide a general funding round through a request for proposal (RFP) for rehab and redevelopment projects (rental and homeowner) outside of the set-aside established by HUD.

    • Explore partnerships with land banks of foreclosed and abandon properties to place back into commerce.

    • Provide soft-seconds to low, moderate and middle income Louisiana residents for purchase and redevelopment of foreclosure properties. Utilize LHFA’s existing Mortgage Revenue Bond Program and other mortgage products to allow families to purchase these properties.
