Cleveland Neighborhood Progress - Chief of Staff & Operations

October 29, 2021

Position:  Chief of Staff and Operations

Company & Links:  Cleveland Neighborhood Progress / 

Location:  11327 Shaker Blvd. #500w, Cleveland, OH  44104

Reporting Relationship:  Chief Executive Officer

Company Overview

Mission: Cleveland Neighborhood Progress’ (CNP) mission is to foster equitable revitalization throughout Cleveland’s neighborhoods by strengthening the community development ecosystem.

Vision: Cleveland’s neighborhoods are attractive, vibrant, and inclusive communities where together, people from diverse incomes, races, and generations thrive, prosper, and choose to live, learn, work, invest, and play.

CNP was founded in 1988 to serve the unique role of a local community development funding and support intermediary for community development corporations (CDCs), and it is a vital partner to Cleveland's community revitalization efforts. In 1991 and 1992, the New Village Corporation (NVC) and Village Capital Corporation (VCC) subsidiaries, respectively, were established to further real estate development and lending in the neighborhoods. While VCC, a Community Development Finance Institution, was initially developed to support the CDC ecosystem, its borrower base has expanded to include private developers as well.

In 2013, Cleveland Neighborhood Development Coalition, an advocacy and trade organization for the CDCs; LiveCLEVELAND!, an organization focused on marketing Cleveland's neighborhoods; and Neighborhood Progress, Inc. merged into Cleveland Neighborhood Progress. The combined organization is a vital partner to Cleveland's community revitalization efforts. CNP has just completed a strategic plan, which has refocused its efforts on the health of community development corporations.
