Cincinnati City Council is expected to allocate nearly $2 million to various neighborhood projects next week.

City administration is recommending 13 projects in eight neighborhoods through the newly established Neighborhood Catalytic Capital Improvement Program. See a full list below.

Department of Community and Economic Development Director Markieya Carter says 27 applicants asked for nearly $9 million in funding.

“The applications were evaluated based on a number of factors including the neighborhood impact, the benefit to strategic investment areas, community support, project scope and budget, private leverage, the organization’s capacity, as well as the completeness of the application,” Carter told Council’s Budget and Finance Committee Monday.

The largest award is $500,000 for the YWCA to open a new domestic violence shelter.
