|Northside Institutions Neighborhood Alliance
Northside Institutions Neighborhood Alliance, Inc. (NINA) is a not-for-profit corporation organized in 2003 to foster the revitalization of Hartford's Asylum Hill neighborhood. NINA is a collaborative effort of four major institutions working together with residents on the common goal of improving Asylum Hill. Our mission is to serve as a catalyst for reinvestment in Asylum Hill by enhancing public safety, homeownership, economic development, and education throughout the neighborhood.
Are You HIP?
NINA administers the homeownership incentive programs (HIPs) of Aetna, The Hartford, MetroHartford Alliance, and Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center. This program offers an incentive to employees who are interested in living in Hartford -- why Hartford? Aside from being a great place to live, HIP offers the opportunity to save the world and green the planet.
Revitalizing Asylum Hill
As part of our revitalization work, NINA has rehabilitated eighteen historic properties for homeownership in the Sigourney Square District of Asylum Hill. We're working now in the Nook Farm District as well, and we're looking forward to the completion of our first project there later this year.
