The Ohio Capital Impact Corporation, OCCH’s philanthropic affiliate, awarded more than $723,000 in grants to partners for summer camp activities and neighborhood improvement projects.

The Carol Mount Peterson Resident Development Fund program allows OCCH to provide grants to its nonprofit partners in order to help residents access educational and employment programs, and support activities designed to increase residents’ ability to live more satisfying and productive lives. To date, OCCH has awarded 529 grants totaling more than $10 million to partners.

 This summer, OCCH awarded more than $519,000 to partners to send more than 400 children living in OCCH financed housing communities to summer camp. The summer camp experience provides children with supervised activities that teach core values, leadership skills, self-confidence, and teamwork. We would like to thank KeyBank, Huntington National Bank, and Fifth Third Bank for their support of OCIC and summer camp.

Summer Camp Award winners include: Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority; Buckeye Community Hope Foundation; Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority; Community Action Commission of Fayette County; Community Housing Network; Episcopal Community Properties of Ohio; Homeport; Housing Authority of Covington; The Model Group; National Housing Association;  Neighborhood Development Corporation of Akron; NRP Group LLC; Oberer Construction; Over-the-Rhine Community Housing; and Resident Resource Network. 

The Place-Based Strategies Fund, also funded through OCIC, provides grants to organizations that impact their neighborhoods through projects that benefit the community.  Since inception in 2012, more than $1.6 million has been awarded to partners for projects that improve their neighborhoods and affect the lives of residents. Funding has provided walking trails, public art projects, community gardens, urban agriculture, safety programs, blight elimination, and home repair and improvements for neighborhoods at large.  

This year, grants were awarded to Oberer Companies; Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority; Burten, Bell, Carr Development; Home Is the Foundation; Over-the-Rhine Community Housing; and Homeport.
