WARREN — Chemical Bank has donated $10,000 to Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership to support the “Building A Better Warren” jobs program.

The effort employs local residents through neighborhood revitalization plans and blight remediation efforts.

“We at Chemical Bank are devoted to the growth and development of the communities we serve,” states Ky Pegues, CRA market manager, Chemical Bank. “TNP does an excellent job of renovating and revitalizing Warren neighborhoods. The Building a Better Warren program is an all-inclusive plan that not only aids in home ownership, but also in job training and job creation. We are happy to support this initiative and assist in the progress of our city.”

The program emphasizes hiring low and moderate -income workers for jobs that improve Trumbull County neighborhoods, such as property rehabilitation and ongoing property maintenance. The program also partners with the Trumbull County Land Reutilization Corp. to focus rehabilitation work on properties in the land corporation’s current inventory.

“This program is all about putting our residents to work in quality, year-round jobs with revitalizing our neighborhoods,” said Matt Martin, TNP’s executive director. “We have merged the need for blight remediation with the need for meaningful workforce development, and we have leveraged multiple resources and partnerships to create this opportunity. This is an exciting program for our community.”

The positions offer health coverage to employees after 90 days of full-time employment.
