Invest in Neighborhoods Inc. is a nonprofit organization created in 1982 to promote and assist the 51 community councils that represent the neighborhoods of Cincinnati, Ohio. Our mission is to assist the councils with financial resources and to promote self-sufficiency and leadership skills of the councils and their residents.
We do this through:
Neighborhood Fund: This perpetual fund generates significant income that is divided among member community councils on an annual basis.
Merit Grant Fund: This fund uses a peer review process to allow councils to award each other small grants based on community based initiatives.
Technical Assistance and Leadership Development: We provide assistance on a daily basis to community councils for their regular operations. We also collaborate with other agencies to assure leadership development opportunities are available to the councils.
