Non-profit Development Corporation Assistance:
Non-profit Development Corporations are providing important development programs within their neighborhoods. The emergence of these organizations has led the City to support their organizational structure not only with project funding but with administration funding. Organizations must be in operation for at least a year and have the capacity to provide housing-related services within a defined neighborhood. For more information, please contact (330) 375-2090.

Community Services Program
Lower-income residents of Akron are provided a range of public and social services concentrating on health, security, education, fair housing and the arts. To learn specifics about each program available, call 330-375-2090.
