Neighborhood Business District Improvement Program
The Neighborhood Business District Improvement Program (NBDIP) assists communities in improving the economic vitality of neighborhood business districts (NBDs) by implementing projects that will improve the overall economy of the NBD. Applicants may apply for grants of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and/or City Capital funds.
Eligible public uses of NBDIP funds include:
|• Road improvements||• Streetscapes|
|• Traffic engineering||• Public Parking lots|
|• Sidewalks||• NBD plans|
Eligible private uses of NBDIP funds include:
|• Facade improvements||• Signage|
|• Building renovation||• Site acquisition and clearance|
|• Awnings||• Site specific planning|
Projects are evaluated in a competitive process that utilizes Cincinnati Neighborhood Business Districts United (CNBDU), a citizens advisory group of neighborhood business representatives. Based on the recommendations of CNBDU and input from City staff, the City Manager makes a final funding recommendation to City Council.

The application period for the 2014 funding period is now closed. The required pre-applications were due on February 14, 2014.
