COURT STREET VILLAGE NON-PROFIT
Court Street Village Non-Profit (CSVNP) pioneered the use of low income housing tax credits in the State of Michigan and raised $20,000,000 to construct two low income senior housing apartment buildings, completed in 1990 and 1993. Since 1986, CSVNP has been awarded over $3,200,000 in federal CDBG and HOME grants to refurbish homes, apartments, and commercial buildings. A Neighborhood Empowerment Program was formed in 1994 by CSVNP to assist the four neighborhoods surrounding downtown Flint, Michigan to improve residents' quality of life through various projects and events. Today, CSVNP is focused on improving and stabilizing two downtown Flint neighborhoods; Central Park and Fairfield Village.
CSVNP was the first organization in Michigan to use low income tax credits to construct low income housing. Court Street Village (CSV) is comprised of an east and west building. CSV East opened in 1990 and has 150 units for seniors 55 and older. It offered affordable rent on one and two bedroom apartments. CSV West opened in 1993, with 106 units for seniors. It was open to all income levels- low, moderate, and market rate.
Transforming our neighborhoods

Each neighborhood is unique and has its own set of challenges and assets. Strategies will differ according to individual neighborhood needs. You can view the Central Park and Fairfield Village neighborhood plans under "Neighborhoods".
CSVNP supports two downtown neighborhood associations, Central Park and Fairfield Village. The Neighborhood Empowerment Program has been successful in assisting these neighborhood organizations in their efforts to create a stronger and more livable neighborhood through such activities as: the creation of cul-de-sac's to reduce traffic and crime; annual neighborhood cleanups; sidewalk replacement program; the Paint Project, and the conversion of outdated street lights to LED and the development of neighborhood long range plans.
