The City of Cincinnati receives funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in order to conduct community and economic development activities. The City will be requesting HUD to designate eligible portions of 34 neighborhoods as Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Areas (NRSA) in order to offer the residents increased opportunities with regards to the federal funding. Specifically, NRSA designation allows more residents in those neighborhoods to have increased access to job training and workforce development assistance. The purpose of this survey is to gather public comments about the needs in the proposed NRSA neighborhoods that this designation may assist in addressing. Please note that the NRSA designation does not guarantee additional federal funding for these neighborhoods but provides for flexibility in the federal funding that will be spent in projects within the proposed areas.
Eligible residential portions of the following neighborhoods will be considered for the NRSA designation: Avondale, Bond Hill, Camp Washington, Carthage, Corryville, CUF, East End, East Price Hill, East Westwood, English Woods, Evanston, Kennedy Heights, Linwood, Lower Price Hill, Madisonville, Millvale, Mt. Airy, Mt. Auburn, North Fairmount, Northside, Over-the-Rhine, Pendleton, Riverside, Roselawn, Sedamsville, South Cumminsville, South Fairmount, Spring Grove Village, Villages at Roll Hill, Walnut Hills, West End, West Price Hill, Westwood, and Winton Hills.
