OCCD 2018 President's Award - Montgomery County

October 1, 2018

The 2018 recipient of the President's Award for Innovative Practices is Montgomery County's "Trucks and Tomatoes" Job Training and Urban Garden Enhancement Project.  The project is funded in part by Montgomery County's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), with additional leverage from Montgomery County general revenue funds.  The truly innovative project was the result of a partnership between Montgomery County, the Dayton Foodbank, Butler Tech, and Central State University (CSU) with support from private sector trucking companies.  For more information about this novel project, visit https://www.occd.org/blog/2018/07/03/occd-presidents-award-to-montgomery-countys-trucks-and-tomatoes.
