Ten residential development projects will receive a total of about $4.4 million in city funds through the Notice of Funding Availability program
. The program was designed to help the city achieve PLAN Cincinnati
’s goal of having a variety of quality housing options for people of all income levels and stages of life.
Each phase of funding will target a different set of neighborhoods. This round of funding includes projects in four targeted neighborhoods: College Hill, Madisonville, Northside and Walnut Hills, as well as projects in Camp Washington, Over-the-Rhine, Roselawn and South Cumminsville.
