CityWide Development Corporation

Formed in 1972 by a coalition of local business leaders, neighborhood representatives, and the city government, CityWide Development Corporation works to help Dayton-area businesses create jobs and strengthen the city’s neighborhoods.  The nonprofit runs several loan programs, including a microloan fund, aimed at helping residents start or grow businesses.  It is also spearheading a downtown housing initiative that aims to create 2,500 housing units by 2020, primarily by redeveloping vacant buildings along main streets.
