Projects are evaluated in a competitive process that utilizes Cincinnati Neighborhood Business Districts United (CNBDU), a citizens advisory group of neighborhood business representatives. Based on the recommendations of CNBDU and input from City staff, the City Manager makes a final funding recommendation to City Council.
