YNDC Seeks Candidates for Multiple Positions
City of Youngstown and YNDC to Launch Live Youngstown Program
In March 2017, the City of Youngstown granted $1,500,000 to the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation, finalizing a partnership to catalyze the renovation and purchase of a larger volume of vacant homes, increasing homeownership as part of broader neighborhood revitalization strategies in neighborhoods throughout the city. The program is called Live Youngstown and will achieve the goal of returning vacant homes to productive and taxpaying use as market-rate, market-ready products, thereby increasing homeownership, population, and tax base in the city.
