Date: 31 Jan 2014
Category: Southeast Community

The Newport News Redevelopment & Housing Authority (NNRHA) and EDA staff partnered at community meetings to highlight work being done in the Southeast Community with federal funds to further community development and homeownership opportunities for moderate and lower income persons in the City.

Staff also participated in meetings with the City Manager’s office to help address vacant lot issues throughout the southern part of the City and facilitated NNRHA’s creation of a neighborhood revitalization entity to help develop certain properties.

The EDA collaborated with NNRHA in the creation of an entity to accept New Markets Tax Credits to assist in the financing of Jim’s Local Market.

NNRHA continued making efforts to improve its housing stock throughout the City via HUD’s new Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Program and City assistance for three complexes located in the middle and northern parts of the City.
