Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area
The establishment of a Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA) is strongly encouraged by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a means to create communities of opportunity in distressed neighborhoods by stimulating the reinvestment of human and economic capital and by economically empowering low-income residents as part of an overall comprehensive community revitalization strategy. The NRSA is an incentive-based program created by HUD to revitalize a community’s most distressed neighborhoods.
Funding for the NRSA is provided by HUD through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.
South Street Target Area NRSA
The development of a Titusville NRSA, for the South Street Target Area, provides a unique opportunity to obtain certain incentives that promote the long-term strength and stability of an older, centrally located neighborhood. The purpose of the NRSA process is to involve residents and various stakeholders in establishing priorities and making recommendations. This Plan is meant to address housing, economic development, and neighborhood-related issues facing the South Street Target Area residents and businesses.
The City encourages all residents, stakeholders, and businesses located within the South Street Target Area (see Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area Boundary Map (JPG)) to participate in its development. Participation in the NRSA process can be through attending the meetings, by email, or in person.
The City held monthly meetings over the last year and encouraged all residents, stakeholders, and businesses, located within the Target Area to participate in its development. A final meeting will be held on Monday, March 30, 2020, at 5:30 pm at the Harry T. Moore Social Service Center located at:
725 S De Leon Avenue
Titusville, FL 32780
