People Working Cooperatively

A Cincinnati Council majority is ready to approve a plan to allocate federal funds that make cuts to some popular programs.  The Budget and Finance Committee yesterday passed a proposal spending Community Development Block Grant dollars.

The federal money is being shifted in part to pay for part of Mayor John Cranley's Hand Up initiative to reduce poverty.  

But the proposal means some other popular programs in the city will see reduced funding or no money at all.  

The Bond Hill non-profit organization People Working Cooperatively is expanding into Dayton. The agency says it will begin offer services in Greene, Montgomery and Preble counties in 2014.
