Neighborhood Stabilization 2
Northwestern Illinois Housing Coalition
The Northwestern Illinois Housing Coalition includes the City of Moline, City of Rock Island, City of Sterling, Illinois Housing Development Authority, and Rock Island Economic Growth Corporation. Together, consortium members were allocated federal funds totaling $18,530,708 under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 for the Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2 (NSP2). Rock Island Economic Growth Corporation serves as the grantee and lead member for the consortium and is the direct recipient of NSP2 funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and urban Development (HUD).


The purpose of the NSP2 is to stabilize communities and neighborhoods by purchasing, rehabilitating, and reselling vacant, foreclosed, and / or abandoned properties. By stabilizing neighborhoods that have a high incidence of vacant and abandoned property and foreclosures the below objects will be accomplished:
  • Demolish blighted properties that pose health and safety problems
  • Acquire vacant, foreclosed, and abandoned properties
  • Rehab and Redevelop vacant, foreclosed, and abandoned properties to meet local housing standards, achieve high energy efficiency standards, and improve marketability
  • Provide affordable homeownership opportunities to households earning up to 120% of the Area Median Income by offering down payment assistance and soft-second mortgages (direct buyers assistance)
