North Lewiston Revitalization Plan (NLRP)
The purpose of the North Lewiston Revitalization Plan (NLRP) is to help improve the quality of North Lewiston commercial, industrial, and mixed-use areas by assisting property owners in the rehabilitation of blighted structures. The City of Lewiston has programmed Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to assist with its economic development efforts. Through the NLRP, the City hopes to encourage investment in North Lewiston, achieve significant visual improvements, and improve North Lewiston's overall health and safety. Funding will be targeted to assist projects that will promote rehabilitation of commercial buildings to improve facades and upgrade existing buildings to bring them into compliance with current codes, with the goal of stimulating additional private investment and creating additional economic opportunities.
The CDBG funds are provided to the City on an annual basis to meet the three National Objectives:
- Meet the needs of low-to moderate-income individuals and families;
- Address slums or blight; or
- Meet an urgent need.
The City's 2018-19 CDBG Action Plan draft will head to the City Council for final adoption on a date to be determined pending the federal budget.
HUD sets income limits that determine eligibility for the CDBG program. HUD develops income limits based on Median Family Income estimates and Fair Market Rent area definitions for each metropolitan area, parts of some metropolitan areas, and each non-metropolitan county.
