Court Street Village Non Profit
Housing Corporation (CSVNP) was
organized in 1986 to provide quality, affordable housing & promote healthy neighborhoods in downtown Flint, Michigan.   

CSVNP pioneered the use of low income housing tax credits and raised $20,000,000 to construct two (2) low income senior housing apartment buildings, built between 1990 and 1993.  In 1994, CSVNP initiated its Neighborhood Empowerment Program to assist 4 downtown Flint, Michigan neighborhood organizations in their efforts to maintain strong, livable neighborhoods through projects, including the rehabilitation of owner occupied homes. With the assistance of public and private grant funds,  over $3,000,000 of rehabilitation work has been completed on nearly 30 homes and commercial buildings in the area between 1994 and 2009.  CSVNP has also been an active partner with other nonprofit organizations and foundations in developing and supporting activities and projects that focus on improving the community. Please view the tab labeled "Community Development" for more detail.

In 1995, with the generous support of a local foundation, CSVNP moved its headquarters into a Victorian style home in the Central Park neighborhood.  The house has an attached auditorium ideal for community meetings and other functions.

In 2009, CSVNP made a conscious decision to focus on neighborhood stabilization through blight elimination and drafted a plan to implement those efforts.  We call it the NICE Initiative. The program was unveiled to neighborhood stakeholders in 2013. Later that year, CSVNP received a grant to replace outdated street lighting to LED. The project was completed in December, 2014. See the tab labeled "NICE Initiative" for detailed information.
