Home Improvement through NRP: An Analysis of the Distribution of Funds for Single-Family Home Improvement Projects.
The Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) was created in response to the decline of Minneapolis's neighborhoods in the late 1980s. NRP has funded neighborhood improvement projects in two 10-year phases. This report analyzes the distribution of single-family home improvement loans and grants during Phase I to identify income characteristics of those receiving loans and relate those characteristics to three types of neighborhoods: protection, revitalization, and redirection.
