Q: How do I affirm my organizational capacity and submit my target geography to get my unique application number?

A: To get a unique application number, an NSP2 grantee must show or affirm two things. 1) the target geography must qualify, and 2) the applicant must affirm that it has meet the organizational capacity threshold of producing 75 units of housing (page 14, paragraph II.B.7 of the NOFA).
  • First, create an account.
  • Second, select and save your proposed target geography.
  • Third, select your target geography and press "submit".
  • Fourth, read the affirmation. If it is true, press "I so affirm".
The system will submit your proposed target geography and assign you a unique application number. It will also store the unique application number in your account so HUD will also have it (and you can look it up if you forget it). Please remember to prominently display the unique application number on your paper application.

The "foreclosure" risk score is based on rank census tracts by two measures: (i) percent of foreclosure problems and (ii) number of foreclosure problems. Each tract receives the higher rank (from 1 to 20) from those two rankings.

The "vacancy" risk score is based on an algorithm that combines 90-day vacancy rates with foreclosure problem rates and then ranks census tracts from 1 to 20 on this estimate. For more information on how these estimates were developed, see the methodology.

The NSP tool displays the average risk score for selected census tracts. The average score is color coded with red indicating high risk. HUD grants are available only for the high risk areas. The census tracts need not have high risk scores for both foreclosure rates and vacancy rates.
