The HUD field office will review the NRSA strategy for stakeholder involvement, performance measures, housing and economic opportunities planned, level of coordination with partners, ability to leverage funding, and the variety of activities and funding sources incorporated into the strategy.

HUD will not look favorably upon strategies that focus exclusively on using only one NRSA incentive, such as the exception to the cap on public services, or as a basis to receive low income housing tax credits for a specific housing project. HUD is interested in strategies that will successfully use a range of resources to revitalize neighborhoods and provide viable and sustainable housing and economic opportunities to local residents.
