As part of this grant, Enterprise has provided technical assistance to NSP grantees in New Orleans, Cleveland, Washington D.C. and numerous other municipalities around the country, building capacity in areas such as green rehabilitation, mortgage financing, financial management and program operation.

- Demolish blighted structures
- Redevelop demolished or vacant properties
