2/9/2018

Cuyahoga County Council will consider the second round of grant awards to various municipalities in connection with the Community Development Supplemental Grant (CDSG) program for the 2018 fiscal year. This highly competitive grant program was approved by Council in June of 2016, allocating one million dollars from the Casino Revenue Fund to support community-based development projects throughout all municipalities within Cuyahoga County. This year a total of 21 communities and non-profit organizations have been  recommended for awards by the review committee.  “As Chair of the Community Development Committee, it is my privilege to introduce this funding resolution which will provide vital resources for community development projects in neighborhoods throughout the County. The CDSG program benefits the people at the local level, improving quality of life for residents and enhancing the economic vitality of our communities,” states Councilman Pernel Jones, Jr.
