Ohio Capital Impact Corporation Announces Two Funding Opportunities–
Applications Due in August


July 1, 2014 – The Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing's philanthropic arm, the Ohio Capital Impact Corporation (OCIC), recently announced two funding opportunities. Funding is made possible in part by contributions from Key Bank and Fifth Third CDC, as well as a multi-year $1 million commitment from Huntington Bank.

Partners with properties in which OCCH has invested can apply to receive grants from the Carol Mount Peterson Resident Development Fund and the Place-Based Strategies Fund. Resident Development Fund grants totaling $500,000 will help residents of OCCH properties through high impact programs focused on wellness, youth empowerment, education, enriching the lives of seniors, and other innovative strategies to help residents reach their full potential. Place-Based Strategies grants totaling $250,000 will improve neighborhoods and revitalize communities. Applications are due in August and material is available on our website.

OCCH has already committed nearly $350,000 in 2014 to support summer activities for children living in 19 OCCH properties. Follow this link for a listing of the grants awarded.
