Project of the Month: CityLink Center

NMTC financing helped Cincinnati's CityLink Center to develop an 84,500 SF community campus for more than 15 social service agencies working across the city. On CityLink's community campus, these organizations "bundle services" together, collaborating with one another to provide comprehensive services and supports to Cincinnati's low-income residents.

CityLink's providers address community members' needs in education, financial literacy, employment, transportation, child care, and more. The Changing Gears program, for instance, provides access to affordable, private transportation. SmartMoney Community Services fosters economic empowerment by offering financial workshops in credit, budgeting, and more. Cincinnati Public Schools runs adult literacy and college prep programs in the Center as well.

In 2015, the CityLink Center served more than 750 clients. The Center actively works with the community, partnering with 22 churches, engaging 400 volunteers, and collaborating with additional organizations.
