The purpose of the Neighborhood Preservation Program (NPP) is to eliminate conditions that may be detrimental to health, life, property, and/or public welfare. To achieve this, NPP provides financial assistance to low-income homeowners for home rehabilitation projects. This support results in homes being brought up to current building codes, the elimination of blight, energy efficiency improvements, accessibility improvements, and the enhancement of older housing stock to promote future investment and the growth of economically integrated communities.
