The County’s Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) was established for the purpose of stabilizing communities that have suffered from foreclosures and abandonment. The RDA, with its non-profit partners, purchase and rehabilitate foreclosed and abandoned homes and make them available to qualified first time homebuyers. Currently the RDA is focusing resources in the following census tracts in the Suitland and District Heights communities, 8024.05, 8025.06, 8020.02, 8020.01, 8018.02, 8019.02, 8021.05, 9019.07,8019.08, 8021.06, 8021.07; and the following zip codes: 20706, 20737, 20743, 20744, 20745, 20746, 20747, 20748, 20772, 20774, 20784 and 20785.
