Like many cities across the nation, the COVID-19 pandemic substantially impacted the health of residents, the quality of life in neighborhoods, and the overall functioning of the local economy in Cleveland. To help turn the tide on the pandemic, address the negative economic consequences that have resulted, and begin on the path toward a productive, substantial and equitable economic recovery, Cleveland was allocated $511,721,590 million in Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). As a part of the transparency and accountability requirements from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, cities with a population that exceeds 250,000 residents are required to produce a Recovery Plan Performance Report that provides information on any projects or programs using these funds, how the community has been engaged in the process, how the City is ensuring program outcomes are achieved in an effective and equitable manner, and to track and report programmatic success and outcomes.

The City of Cleveland is shifting to a bi-weekly, opt-in recycling program. Residents interested in opting in to the curbside recycling program must sign up by October 22nd, 2021 through the opt-in form or by calling 216-664-3030 and agree to the recycling program guidelines.

Until further notice, Environmental Review Records (ERRs) available for public comment for the release of HOME and CDBG funds under Section 212(a)(1) of Title II (42 U.S.C. 12701 et seq.) of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act can no longer be viewed in person.

In summer 2019, the city of Cleveland’s Office of Community Development and the Equitable Community Development Working Group engaged with Reinvestment Fund, PFM, Greater Ohio Policy Center, Neighborhood Connections and Leverage Point Development, to study the City’s residential tax abatement program. The study was commissioned to better understand the historic usage of the program, the value it generated for the City, and to identify potential adjustments to the program that would help the City advance an Equitable Community Development Strategy as part of Mayor Jackson’s Neighborhood Transformation Initiative.

This new program helps seniors aged 60 years and older and adults with disabilities address one home maintenance or home repair need. The program will also assist with referrals to other home repair programs. There are income restrictions and guidelines for the program.

The status of complaints filed by citizens with the Office of Professional Standards can now be viewed online.  A valid OPS case number is required.
