We have joined the City of Cleveland’s initiative to create a Ten-Year Housing and Investment Plan. We know housing is an issue important to the members of our network and our community at-large, and being a part of this process allows us to ensure that residents’ voices play a role in shaping the recommendations that this plan produces. Once the plan is complete we can work with one another, the City, and partner institutions to make sure the plan is implemented.
We’re thrilled to receive more funding from the Greater Cleveland COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund to provide grants to small nonprofit organizations and grassroots group. Read the full story here and check our our grants here.
Neighbor Up is working with a team of parishioners and community members at Blessed Trinity Parish to offer a new Microloan Program for grassroots entrepreneurs who want to start or grow businesses in the West Park area.
The new program offers very low interest microloans with manageable monthly payments and a simple, accessible application process for people who may have had no prior experience with business financing, or who may simply need some resources to help them get a project going. Designed to help more people build their own earnings, particularly those who may find challenges with employment, the Microloan Program will provide more than just finances – it will also bring entrepreneurs into a network of people who can provide support in a range of ways, from legal advice to help with marketing services, bookkeeping and business planning.
