BESSEMER – Fifteen Michigan communities will benefit from Neighborhood Enhancement Program (NEP) grants this summer that will generate high-impact projects directly tied to stabilizing and improving the local area. NEP grants require that the projects and activities align with one or more of five core components: housing enhancements, affordable homeownership opportunity (HPR), homeowner emergency repairs, beautification and neighborhood public amenity enhancements. The funded projects must be completed by the fall and make a noticeable difference within the community. The goal of these grants is to help – and eventually showcase – model Michigan neighborhoods where residents are engaged and facilitating positive change for their communities. The grant awardees include: Gogebic Ontonagon CAA Awarded $50,000 for exterior home improvements such as siding, roofing, porches and sidewalks for single-family homes in Bessemer’s Yale neighborhood.
