Washington, DC – On Monday, September 8 the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) will host a statewide summit in Cleveland on community reinvestment and neighborhood revitalization in Ohio. The Ohio Reinvestment Summit will feature a keynote address by U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown and include seminars and workshops on community reinvestment, foreclosure prevention, economic revitalization, community development, small business lending, affordable housing, economic security for older adults, and housing and job strategies for low-income neighborhoods.
“NCRC has heard from many of our members across Ohio about the wave of disinvestment that is affecting the state’s communities,” said NCRC President and CEO John Taylor. “The Ohio Reinvestment Summit is a chance for advocates to meet, share knowledge and best practices, organize and develop strategies for strengthening neighborhoods and communities in order to create a healthy economy that benefits all Ohioans. We’re pleased to have this opportunity to work with our Ohio members to come up with ways to build community reinvestment across the state.”
