Cuyahoga County considers sweeping housing program to stabilize neighborhoods

Cuyahoga County proposes to launch a $30 million, six-year effort to stabilize home values, eliminate blight and to encourage renovation and construction of affordable housing.

If approved by County Council, the Cuyahoga County Housing Program also would refocus the county’s land bank from demolition to rehabilitation. Legislation will be introduced Tuesday, according to a council agenda posted Friday.
