What is Ohio Community Development?

What is Ohio community development?

Community Development Corporations have been active in Ohio since the 1960’s and were established to address the needs of underserved communities. These non-profit organizations are dedicated to revitalizing neighborhoods, block-by-block.

They provide resources through public-private partnerships to nurture economically and socially healthy communities in Ohio.

CDCs exist because local heroes give their time, talent and care. Some initiatives include:

  • Affordable Housing
  • Community Economic Development
  • Financial Empowerment
  • Food Access
  • Community Engagement

These local actions create local results, which contribute to the health and wellness of our state’s residents and properties by creating economic opportunities and improving social conditions.
