Plan Description:
This Action Plan will be used by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) in partnership with the Office of Rural Community Affairs (ORCA) to distribute and use $101,996,848 through the newly-authorized Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), which the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is providing to the State of Texas. The NSP funds were authorized by the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA) as an adjunct to the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program for the redevelopment of abandoned and foreclosed homes and residential properties. Texas NSP funding is available to eligible entities operating in counties meeting the threshold of greatest need. A multi-level approach will be used in the distribution of funds to communities. The first level, Direct Allocation, is a reservation of a specified amount available to eligible entities in 25 counties identified as having the highest order of significant need. The second level, Select Pool, is an initial competitive allocation of not less than $500,000, available to entities in up to 76 additional counties which have also been identified as demonstrating significant need. In addition, a separate pool of Texas NSP funds is available for land banking activities.

Recovery Needs:
NSP activities will include the establishment of financing mechanisms for purchase and redevelopment of foreclosed homes and residential properties, purchase and rehabilitation of homes and residential properties that have been abandoned or foreclosed, establishment of land bank/trusts, removal of blight, and the redevelopment of demolished or vacant properties. Households directly assisted with NSP funds must income qualify and be at or below 120% of the Area Median Income (AMI), as defined by HUD. The following counties have been identified as having the greatest need (in order of need score): Tarrant Dallas Cameron Bexar Hidalgo Harris Nueces Collin Webb Travis Montgomery El Paso Brazoria Potter Jefferson Denton Taylor Williamson Bell Lubbock Galveston Wichita Fort Bend Ector McLennan Gregg Tom Green Grayson Brazos Victoria Orange Bowie Harrison Midland Smith Comal Hays Ellis Johnson Kaufman Parker Bastrop Hood Liberty Hunt Henderson Rockwall Wise Hill Burnet Navarro Guadalupe Randall Angelina Wood Matagorda Lamar San Patricio Atascosa Milam Maverick Jim Wells Eastland Van Zandt Kleberg Grimes Hale Palo Pinto Nacogdoches Hopkins Kendall Coryell Cooke Kerr Medina Aransas Caldwell Wilson Gonzales Waller Anderson Val Verde Montague Llano Washington Fannin Walker Upshur Brown Cherokee Jackson Austin Starr Wharton Polk Gillespie Jasper Leon Willacy Erath Howard

Overall Progress Narrative:

The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) worked together with the Texas Department of Rural Affairs (TDRA) to make recommendations for Neighborhood Stabilization Program funding.  On July 16, 2009, the TDHCA Governing Board awarded $96,897,006 in NSP funding to 62 units of general local government and nonprofit entities to carry out NSP-eliblible activities.  All remaining funds were reserved for State administrative expenses.

The State conducted four NSP Implementation Workshops in Austin, Dallas, Houston and McAllen from July 28, 2009 through August 6, 2009.  On September 15, 2009 a webinar was conducted to familiarize subrecipients with the State's on-line Housing Contract System for draw processing and project activity set-ups.

The majority of the 62 Texas NSP contracts with subrecipients were written and mailed for subrecipient signature before the end of this quarter.  All contracts have a start date of September 1, 2009 and vary in length of contract period according to the types of activities to be performed.
