Developing communities

JP Morgan Chase recently announced a $3 million grant to support local community development financial institutions in the state, and the Cincinnati Development Fund was a recipient.


The initiative supports the collaboration of local nonprofit Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) to bolster small-business lending and community development financing in distressed neighborhoods.


According to the bank, Cincinnati — along with Cleveland and Columbus — was chosen because it has neighborhoods experiencing impacts of gentrification as real estate markets improve and attract market rate investments.
