Spotlight: NSP-funded housing rehabilitation
Southside Community Development & Housing Corporation is a non-profit community development corporation located in Richmond, Virginia. Southside was established to help residents obtain safe, clean, and affordable housing.
Under funding from HUDís Neighborhood Stabilization Program, the organization purchases foreclosed and abandoned single-family homes, manages the rehabilitation of the homes, and resells them to low-moderate and middle income families.
Jim Chambers, Project Manager, uses Housing Developer Pro to create work write-ups for the purchased homes and to produce bid packages for contractors performing the rehab work. Additionally, HDP helps Mr. Chambers establish a baseline budget by generating an internal cost estimate based on the work write-up.
