Neighborhood Improvement Project (NIP)

The NIP program assists eligible owner occupants in repairing their homes. All repairs are based upon municipal building code violations, lead hazard reduction, health and safety concerns. Examples of repairs would include roof replacements, porches, floors, and windows.

Sherman Park Neighborhood Improvement District #4 (NID)

Home-owner-occupants in the designated Sherman Park Neighborhood Improvement District (NID) area are eligible for up to $5,000 in home improvement assistance. The Sherman Park Community Association administers the grants for the NID. The NID provides modest grants homeowners of single family homes and duplexes in the WP NID Area (e.g. $500 – $5,000 each) to make the following improvements to their properties: energy efficiency improvements, repairs to increase water efficiency, repairs to the structural condition of the property (including roof repairs), safety improvements (including lighting, fencing and garages) and repairs to increase the curb appeal of property (“Improvements”).

Targeted Investment Neighborhoods (TINs) 

SPCA will also assist residents with their applications to the TIN programs. The goal of the program is to support and encourage homeowners and responsible landlords to improve the safety and appearance of the neighborhood. Homeowners and landlords who use the program can make common household repairs and updates.
