September 19, 2018 Print ShareThis

They’re back! The clinics that started the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) are back to assist NSP 1, 2, and 3 grantees with closing out their grants.

Take advantage of this rare opportunity for face-to-face technical assistance with the top experts in DRGR and NSP programs! Bring your most challenging issues and questions and get help moving to closeout through one-on-one troubleshooting. Here’s what past participants had to say:

“This training was invaluable to me and the hands-on workshops couldn’t have been more helpful! The training helped me understand how NSP activities should be reported and associated in DRGR; and subsequently, provided me with a great deal of clarity in the reconciliation process. Overall, because of this instruction, I left the training being able to create a road map toward NSP Closeout! Thank you!” – Los Angeles 2018 NSP Workshop Participant

“It was quite exciting getting to see and meet the brains that have such a wealth of information – all in the same room. A power house to say the least.” – Chicago 2018 NSP Workshop Participant

HUD is offering a combination of lecture, hands-on exercises, and TA in these sessions that are valuable for every NSP program practitioner.
