Title of Proposal: FY 2011 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for Neighborhood Stabilization Program Technical Assistance and Capacity Building; Request for Qualifications (NSPTA).

Description of the Need for the Information and Its Proposed Use: The Narratives, Matrices and Reporting Requirements associated with NSP TA will allow CPD to accurately assess the experience, expertise, and overall capacity of applicants for technical assistance under the FY 2011 Program NOFA.
