NeighborWorks® Greater Manchester has an extremely active and highly dedicated Neighborhood Development Department. Our neighborhood development activities are designed to energize the Greater Manchester real estate markets. Crucial to these activities is an aggressive acquisition and redevelopment strategy. This helps bring affordable rental and home ownership opportunities to families, while eliminating properties that are rundown or neglected. More importantly, newer renovated homes help grow neighborhoods and residential pride and that is the first step toward community redevelopment.
The principal goals of the NeighborWorks® Greater Manchester, Neighborhood Development Department include the elimination of blight; the development of high quality, affordable rental units; the promotion and development of affordable home ownership opportunities and the empowerment of neighborhood residents to improve the quality of life in the neighborhoods and towns where they live. During the past 12 years NeighborWorks® Greater Manchester has stabilized nearly 270 units of affordable housing. Many of these units were vacant and or abandoned sites with little hope of ever providing safe homes for the many families in need of affordable, safe places to live.
