Rockdale County Launches the Nation's First Neighborhood Stabilization (NSP) Model Block Project

Rockdale County is blazing trails with the launch of the nation's first stimulus funded model block approach. Underwritten by the US Department of Housing & Urban Development's (HUD) Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), all of their acquired foreclosed properties are in one neighborhood; on the same street.

Rockdale County Government and APD Solutions (APDS), a national Neighborhood Revitalization Firm, are proving naysayers wrong in showing how strategic planning of the use of funds can have a positive effect on improving local communities. With the assistance of Federal Stimulus funds provided through the partnership with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, they are rehabilitating empty foreclosed homes, employing dozens of people and providing thousands of dollars in down payment assistance to homebuyers. Their aggressive approach is catching the attention of local and state officials. Rockdale County is making much needed progress in providing the home buying public with a steady supply of quality, affordable and renovated homes.
