Partnership Aimed at Youngstown Blight - WFMJ


Some areas in Youngstown will be getting a facelift thanks to a partnership between the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation (YNDC) and AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC).

Congressman Tim Ryan announced the partnership on March 12 saying the partnership will “further YNDC's mission to improving neighborhoods and the quality of life for residents of Youngstown.”

The partnership will continue until April 25.

The NCCC will help YNDC prepare vacant homes for renovation or board them up for safety. They will also clean up trash and debris, clear overgrown areas, repair fences in public spaces, and landscape public areas. To read the full story from WFMJ, click here.
