North Chicago Neighborhood Revitalization ProgramNorth Chicago Neighborhood Revitalization Program
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 developed the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), which offers funding to rehabilitate blighted properties abandoned in the foreclosure crisis. Lake County has partnered with Waukegan and North Chicago and local affordable housing developers to tackle the fallout of mass foreclosures. As of February 2014, the NSP created 60 units of housing in target communities throughout the County. The most recent success is the demolition of a blighted commercial property located in North Chicago. Learn More.
