Posted by Matthew Brian Hersh on January 14, 2010
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced this morning the long-awaited list of grantees for the second round of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP2) — $2 billion in available funds set aside in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The grants were awarded competitively to applicants who “developed the most innovative ideas to rebuild local communities, while demonstrating that they have the capacity to be responsible stewards of taxpayer dollars.”
