Stark County Neighborhood Partnership Program

Healthy Neighborhoods Program

This program seeks to expand and enhance the Neighborhood Leadership model and infuse CBP's Healthy Neighborhood approach to supercharge neighborhood revitalization efforts and continue to empower residents to make positive change in their neighborhoods.



Capital for Neighborhoods

Working with all our lending partners, CBP established CBP’s Lending Services to provide affordable and quality financing for both home improvements and home buying.  Led by Huntington Bank’s $15 million, 3-year commitment to all low-to-moderate census tracks in Canton, CBP offers Lending Services to many neighborhoods in Canton. These specific loan products are EXCLUSIVE to CBP-only eligible through the CBP partnership office.

Supporting the City's Community Development Agenda

CBP is committed to assisting the City of Canton with its neighborhood agenda.  During 2014, CBP was awarded two separate fees-for services contracts to assist the City with:

  • Processing City Rehab Program applicants and applications, including over 60 applications in 2014 with the potential of over $1 million in approved grants;

  • •Assisting City departments with their “due diligence” regarding the Stark County Land Reutilization Corporation’s Side Lot program, where property owners have the opportunity to receive adjacent vacant property.


David Boehlke: Canton Neighborhood Project

“The Canton Neighborhood Project has been developed and managed by Community Building Partnership of Stark County, Inc. (CBP) on behalf and under contract with the City of Canton.  It is CBP’s desire that this effort continue the important community conversation on how best to renew the neighborhoods of Canton.  CBP gratefully acknowledges and thanks Mayor William Healy and his administration, the Community Development department, and City Council of the City of Canton for their support and guidance on this project”. Joel Owens, Director of CBP
