The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has allocated the amount of $3,285,926 in Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds to the County of Orange through the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008. The funds will be utilized by selected contractors to acquire abandoned or foreclosed homes with high foreclosure abandonment risk scores (as determined by HUD) in unincorporated areas and cities participating in the Urban County of Orange program or Tier 2 cities as designated by the County. The funds may be used for either homeownership or rental activities within County NSP guidelines. To receive these funds, the County adopted a substantial amendment which was submitted to HUD on November 25, 2008.
