New Castle County (NCC): Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP)

The objectives of the New Castle County NSP are to purchase and rehabilitate homes and residential properties that are blighted or have been abandoned or foreclosed upon, in order to sell, rehab or redevelop such homes and properties for homeownership and/or rental opportunities. New Castle County hopes this program will provide significant movement towards the stabilization of neighborhoods greatly impacted by the foreclosure crisis
