MAY 19, 2011 - 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM ET
Detroit NeighborWorks Training Institute, Detroit, MI
NeighborWorks America will bring together nonprofit grantees along with their consortium partners for a one-day convening focused on implementation of Round 2 of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Hosted by NeighborWorks America’s Stable Communities Initiative with generous support by Citi Community Development. Invitation-only event: please contact Stable Communities Initiative staff at firstname.lastname@example.org. For materials from this event, click here.
The convening will take place on Thursday, May 19th and will provide participants with an opportunity for training/technical assistance and peer learning. Participants will focus on relevant issues including financial management, cost recovery, compliance, and property disposition. The day’s agenda will be shaped by a survey of registered participants to determine the most pressing issues facing NSP2 grantees. The convening will feature training clinics lead by industry experts, peer sharing sessions, exciting keynote presentations, and an opportunity for interaction with HUD staff. Participants will also be invited to supplement the convening with a broader view of the current practice of community revitalization through the one-day symposium, “Rebuilding Older Industrial Communities”, that will be held on Wednesday, May 18th in Detroit.
NeighborWorks America would like to thank Citi Community Development for their generous support of the Nonprofit NSP2 Grantee Convening. Since 2004, Citi has provided over $20 million in funding to various NeighborWorks projects and initiatives, both locally and nationally. Citi staff serves on many of the boards and committees of local NeighborWorks organizations, in addition to national committees, as well as provides in-kind donations of space and volunteers when needed. One of the first bankers to serve on the Neighborhood Housing Services of Jamaica Board was a Citibanker by the name of Norman Hunt, in 1974. He was one of the original members of the committee that brought NHS to New York City, and he facilitated the funding for the first NHS of Jamaica program to purchase and renovate vacant homes. Citi support over the years has been consistent. They believe in the work that Neighborworks organizations do and support them through:
o Direct grants and contributions
o Indirectly by funding the national organization which in turns provides funds to local organizations
o Home buyers seminars
o Closing cost assistance for first-time home buyers
o Technical assistance
o Foreclosure prevention/intervention counseling and education support
o Foreclosure prevention outreach
o Support for NSP-related activities through sponsoring events such as the Nonprofit NSP2 Grantee Convening
o Donations and discounted sales of REO properties through NCST
