Thriving Communities Institute and Loveland Technologies receive major Ohio mapping grant

Cleveland-based Thriving Community Institute and Detroit-based Loveland Technologies have received a major grant from JP Morgan Chase for comprehensive property mapping to aid revitalization in Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati.

As written in Lee Chilcote’s Next City piece of Jim Rokakis from Thriving Community Institute, an OCDCA member:

“Our hope is that by getting the data, we’ll be able to present a really clear and coherent picture of urban Ohio,” says Rokakis. “For most cities in Ohio, it really is a very, very difficult time that requires drastic and immediate action.”

This has been getting a decent amount of press, including in the Washington Post and Next City. Really exciting stuff.
