Development & Public Affairs

Raytown has sold two of four NSP3 homes within Raytown. There are still two homes available and more construction will begin in the spring. NSP3 stands for Neighborhood Stabilization Program of which Raytown is a participant. The program is run by the Builder’s Development Corporation. All income received goes back into the program to fund additional home rehabs and new construction. Property has already been identified to build additional homes as current homes are sold.

Congress established the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) for the purpose of stabilizing communities that have suffered from foreclosures and abandonment. Funds were allocated by a formula based on the number of foreclosures and vacancies in the neighborhoods. Eligible NSP3 activities include: establishment of temporary land banks of abandoned and foreclosed properties to facilitate land development; demolition of blighted structures; purchase of foreclosed or abandoned parcels; redevelopment of vacant, abandoned, or foreclosed properties; and offer home buyer assistance to income eligible purchasers of foreclosed or abandoned property.

If you are interested in one of these homes or would like more information about the homes, visit the Builder’s Development Corporation’s Web site at www.bdc-kc.org.
