Three community councils reimbursed for NSP activities

Three Cincinnati community councils will receive reimbursement for Neighborhood Support Program (NSP) funding spent during the first three months of 2010.

Funding agreements between the City's Department of Community Development and the community councils did not become effective until April.

Receiving payments are: East End Area Council, $287.50; Riverside Civic and Welfare Club, $258.70; and Lower Price Hill Community Council, $249.50.

In 2009, Cincinnati City Council authorized more than $2,600 in back payments to community councils following a break in services caused by the City's takeover of NSP administration from Invest in Neighborhoods.
