Summary of Nationwide NSP Investment Cluster (NIC) Performance and Analysis Methodology


Date Published: December 2013


This document provides a summary of nationwide NSP Investment Cluster (NIC) performance. It also describes the methodology used to conduct the study. The NIC study analyzes how markets treated with a concentration of NSP investment have changed over time compared to similar markets that have only minimally or not been touched by NSP. These findings are then displayed in a series of maps and reports at the cluster level and at the grantee level. These tools can assist grantees and HUD in understanding how markets in which they are investing are changing over time, and how certain types of investment might affect NSP target areas.
