The North Carolina Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NC Neighborhood) will offer a non-entitlement municipality or county the opportunity to tailor a project to meet the community development needs specific and most critical to their locality, primarily for their low- and moderate-income residents with special consideration for storm impacted areas. The NC Neighborhood Program incorporates several previous Rural Economic Development Division (REDD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs and activities such as Scattered Site Housing and Supportive Housing.


North Carolina received approximately $47.9 million in CDBG funds for 2018. Of this amount, approximately $10.0 million will be made available for the NC Neighborhood Program.  The state makes these funds available through awarding grants to non-entitlement governments throughout North Carolina. 


The NC Neighborhood Program will support the three livability principles that helps guide sustainability and resiliency throughout areas that receive funding.   Regardless of the program activity or activities local governments pursue, NC Neighborhood Program projects must incorporate at least one of the following three livability principles as an area of focus:


NC Neighborhood 3 Livability Principles Defined:

  • Promote equitable, affordable housing. Expand location and energy-efficient housing choices for people of all ages, incomes, races, and ethnicities to increase mobility and lower the combined cost of housing and transportation.
  • Support existing communities. Target federal funding toward existing communities - through strategies like transit-oriented, mixed-use development, and land recycling - to increase community revitalization and the efficiency of public works investments and safeguard rural landscapes.
  • Value communities and neighborhoods. Enhance the unique characteristics of all communities by investing in health, safe, and walkable neighborhoods - rural, urban, or suburban.
