The City of Titusville, Florida / Community Development / Neighborhood Services / Housing / FEDERAL AND STATE GRANTS / CDBG / Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA)
The establishment of a Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NSRA) is strongly encouraged by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a means to create communities of opportunity in distressed neighborhoods by stimulating the reinvestment of human and economic capital and by economically empowering low-income residents as part of an overall comprehensive community revitalization strategy. The NRSA is an incentive-based program created by HUD to revitalize a community's most distressed neighborhoods.
Funding for the NRSA is provided by HUD through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.
The development of a Titusville NRSA, for the South Street Target Area, provides a unique opportunity to obtain certain incentives which promote the long-term strength and stability of an older, centrally located neighborhood. The purpose of the NRSA process is to involve residents and various stakeholders in establishing priorities and making recommendations. This Plan is meant to address housing, economic development, and neighborhood-related issues facing the South Street Target Area residents and businesses.
The City encourages all residents, stakeholders, and businesses located within the South Street Target Area (see map below) to participate in its development. The City invites the community to attend monthly meetings at the Harry T. Moore Social Service Center on the third Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. to provide feedback and input on the Plan.
The following revised schedule is provided to assist the community in determining which incentive meeting(s) may be of most importance to them to attend:
- April 16 - Community Perception and Promoting the Neighborhood
- May 21 - Instill Pride
- June 18 - Historic Resources

- December 17- Enhance Existing Parks
