Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership, Huntington partner for land bank

Staff report

WARREN — The Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership Side Lot Incentive Program, a partnership with the Trumbull County Land Reutilization Corporation, has received support from Huntington Bank.

Huntington has awarded $10,000 to TNP, which allows eligible residents who have purchased a side lot from the Trumbull County Land Bank to receive a $250 gift card to the vendor of their choice to purchase tools, materials and supplies needed to make improvements to their new side lot.

Applications are available on TNP’s homepage at www.tnpwarren.org or by contacting TNP at 330-469-6828.

“We are excited to continue our relationship with Huntington Bank and the Side Lot Incentive Program as we work to continue our work with residents to ensure they have the tools they need in order to beautify their new space,” said Jessica King, Land Bank program qssociate.

Homeowners in Trumbull County are able to acquire eligible side lots through the Land Bank for a nominal fee, returning derelict vacant properties to productive use. Huntington’s support provides an opportunity to help those who take up the challenge of yard expansion.

“We are proud of our Ohio roots. This has been our home since our founding in 1866,” said William C. Shivers, regional president of Huntington Bank in Canton and Mahoning Valley. “Our purpose is to make people’s lives better, help businesses thrive and strengthen the communities we serve. That’s why we are very proud to support the Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership Side Lot Incentive Program and do our part to invest in and revitalize our local community.”

Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership is a nonprofit community development corporation serving the neighborhoods of Warren. TNP empowers residents and promotes sustainable development through projects and programs that improve the quality of life and build a healthy, thriving community.

The Trumbull County Land Reutilization Corporation was formed by the Trumbull County Treasurer’s office, with support from the Trumbull County commissioners and the Trumbull County prosecutor, to return vacant and abandoned properties to productive use in Trumbull County.

TCLRC, informally known as the Trumbull County Land Bank, contracts with the Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership for the disposition of properties.
