The trolley tour was generously underwritten by US Bank. The trolleys stopped by various houses, where community members were then given a tour and a presentation by a TRP financial counselor. TRP recently used $13.5 million in Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2 (NSP2) funds to acquire 81 units in Back of the Yards. TRP is now renovating these into affordable housing. Some will become rental units, and others will be sold at below-market values. The trolley tour was designed to show these properties to community members and potential homeowners.
