Spring is here and the Cuyahoga Land Bank NIP Greening Program is now in full force! The program is made possible by the Ohio Housing Finance Agency’s Neighborhood Initiative Program (NIP). The program works along with the Cuyahoga Land Bank Side Yard Program to beautify the vacant lots adjacent to residents’ homes. The lots eligible for the program will be improved through additional landscaping, trees and fencing. The program will not only beautify vacant lots but also add to the aesthetics of the street, stabilize surrounding properties, and offer neighbors healthy green space for passive and active recreation. The Cuyahoga Land Bank is excited that the NIP Greening Program is underway. The program is a great opportunity to transform vacant lots into vibrant places! For any questions on the program please reach out to Lilah Zautner, Manager of Special Projects and Land Reuse, at 216-698-8853 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
