Neighborhood Business District Improvement Program

Applicants may apply for grants of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and/or City Capital funds.
Eligible public uses of NBDIP funds include:
|• Road improvements||• Streetscapes|

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.
