"The NBDIP process reaffirms our commitment to strategically investing in neighborhoods to grow the city. 


Awarded annually, funds from the NBDIP can be used for a variety of capital improvements and other uses to promote economic development in officially recognized neighborhood business districts. The projects are implemented in partnerships between City staff and community volunteers.

This funding is in addition to the Administration's recommendation for the Focus 52 program, which will create a pool of $54 million for neighborhood projects throughout the city. 

Cincinnati City Council will make the final decisions when it sets the Consolidated Plan and Capital Investment Program budgets for the 2013 fiscal year.
