NSP Clinic Registration

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Community Planning and Development is sponsoring 10 one-day clinics for Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) grantees. Each clinic will include workshops and one-on-one consultations with program area experts on a variety of NSP topics.

Detroit, MI   December 7 and 8, 2010
Atlanta, GA   January 11 and 12, 2011
Los Angeles, CA   January 19 and 20, 2011

*Each NSP1, NSP2, and NSP3 grantee has received an invitation via e-mail to attend a clinic at one of five locations.

Each grantee may bring up to five individuals including staff and program partners to attend one-hour workshop sessions on specific topics and one-hour one-on-one appointments with program area experts to go over questions and challenges specific to their program. These regionally-focused clinics also include a designated peer-to-peer area where grantees, HUD field office staff, HUD headquarters staff, and technical assistance staff can interact, connect, and share best practices.

Via this registration site, grantees are invited to select up to 3 workshop sessions that they would like to see offered at the clinic and to sign up for 5 one-on-one appointments with experts to discuss specific issues related to their programs. After registering, each grantee will receive a confirmation e-mail indicating their one-on-one appointment selections. At the clinic, each grantee will receive a personalized schedule with their one-on-one appointments with program area experts. Because the workshop sessions and one-on-one appointments are held concurrently, grantee staff can choose to split up to attend both workshop and one-on-one appointments throughout the day.

Workshop topics may include:

  • NSP Program Requirements and Rules
  • DRGR
  • Land Banks–Tools for Redevelopment
  • NSP3 Program Design
  • Marketing
  • Accessing Credit
  • Sustainable Underwriting for Multifamily Projects
  • Managing Scattered-Site Rental Programs
