The Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) was established for the purpose of stabilizing communities that have been severely impacted by foreclosures and abandonment. We buy foreclosed homes, fix them up and then sell them to qualified buyers.

The proposed amended area is generally bound by the following: Highway 92/Fairburn Road at Midway Road south to Mount Vernon Road and northeast along Mount Vernon Road to Skyview Drive and east along Skyview to Highway 6/Thornton Road. Then, generally northwest along Thornton Road to Highway 78/Bankhead Highway west to South Burnt Hickory Road. On September 4, 2013 that map was posted as a downloadable document on this page and titled 2013 Proposed NSP3 Target Area Expansion and the comment period commenced.
