Targeted Investment Neighborhood (TIN)

The Targeted Investment Neighborhood (TIN) initiative is designed to sustain and increase owner-occupancy, provide high quality affordable rental housing, strengthen property values, and improve the physical appearance and quality of life of neighborhoods. TINs focus resources for three years on a small area, generally six to twelve city blocks.

Bricks and mortar are just a part of what’s needed to improve neighborhoods. NIDC’s TIN program works with residents to improve the quality of life in their neighborhood. NIDC’s Community Outreach Coordinator is a liaison between the neighborhood and City departments. Staff also provides assistance with community-building and outreach. Learn more about this program
