NCST collaborates with local partners and national stakeholders to accelerate revitalization in low- to moderate-income neighborhoods. Our goal is to ensure communities have access to neighborhood-level solutions to return distressed properties to a productive re-use, ranging from rehabilitation for owners or renters, to safe demolition and alternative use of vacant land.
We join forces with our local partners to create pathways to reclaim vacant, abandoned and distressed properties; find flexible financing to support local housing efforts; increase the capacity of and support for local collaborations; and serve as a national advocate promoting the use of community-based strategies for neighborhood stabilization.
Since 2009, we have helped find solutions for more than 20,000 distressed properties.
Hogar Hispano, Inc. purchased this Maryland single-family home and transformed it with more than $21,000 in rehabilitation to a family-ready home for a buyer who was at 67% of AMI. The family wanted to have their own place with a yard to call home for their children.
