TROY, OH (May 31, 2011) Troy Community Works! (TCW) is pleased to announce they have received a $20,000 grant from the Ohio Community Development Finance Fund to go towards the pre-development work of the 221 E. Main Street Building and welcome our summer intern Katie Dahlinghaus. The Ohio Community Development Finance Fund was founded in 1987 as a financial intermediary dedicated to creating possibility and providing opportunity for a better quality of life. The Finance Fund provides resources to support organizations like Troy Community Works! that assist low- and moderate-income families and communities. The mission of the Finance Fund is to build bridges between resources and the low-income community to improve the quality of life for people. The grant TCW received from the finance fund is specifically geared to assist organizations with their pre-development needs such as architectural drawings, permitting, and marketing the building. Jon Moorehead, program officer for the Finance Fund is looking forward to this partnership with TCW. “As a financial intermediary in the community development arena, the Finance Fund’s resources are best placed in projects that enhance existing revitalization. The redevelopment of 221 East Main Street perfectly fits with our mission.”
