The City’s commitment encourages a “live-work” environment, supported by a mix of housing types reflecting a variety of income levels. The City’s Community Development emphasis will remain on providing housing opportunities for low- to moderate-income families.
Residents, property owners, businesses, and other stakeholders have come together in several neighborhoods to create and adopt Neighborhood Master Plans. The overarching goal of these plans is to create a vibrant neighborhood encompassing a variety of housing types and incomes while remaining sensitive to the neighborhood’s identity. The City’s Community Development efforts in the redevelopment will reclaim vacant parcels, recycle blighted structures, and repair and/or develop infrastructure. In addition, Community Development’s comprehensive neighborhood leadership, economic development, job training, and housing counseling programs work in conjunction with redevelopment efforts to ensure residents play an active role in the revitalization of their neighborhood and are better positioned for home ownership.
Special Emphasis Neighborhoods:
The Greenville Housing Fund will provide below-market financing for projects funded by this application. City of Greenville funds are expected to be used as gap financing to cover development costs that cannot reasonably be obtained from other sources. Special consideration will be given to proposals that demonstrate compliance with the City’s Minority and Women-Owned Business goals.
