The CDC Neighborhood Micro-Grant Program was created to provide Community Development Corporation (CDC) network partners with an economic development tool to help retain, expand and attract small businesses within Cleveland’s neighborhoods. Eligible businesses can receive microgrants to cover eligible costs related to the daily operation and/or expansion of their business. CDCs will work to identify small businesses within their service area that are community-minded and have demonstrated a commitment to the revitalization of Cleveland’s neighborhoods through job retention, creation, and increase the quality of life for Cleveland residents.
