YNDC Receives Community Impact Award for REVITALIZE


Wednesday, March 11, 2015

On Wednesday, March 11th, the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation was awarded a Dominion Community Impact Award for its REVITALIZE efforts to stabilize Youngstown neighborhoods.

YNDC’s REVITALIZE efforts over the course of the past year include: partnerships with the City of Youngstown, neighborhood groups and many others to develop neighborhood action plans; a new AmeriCorps REVITALIZE project that provides 10 members with a year long program to board up hundreds of vacant homes, rehabilitate vacant homes and clean up vacant lots; significantly increased housing activity in our HUD Certified Housing Counseling, acquisition and rehabilitation, and repair programs. These results demonstrate our ongoing commitment to increase the scale and impact of our work.
