Clinton Park RISE
The Clinton Park neighborhood is a current focus of RISE.
Clinton Park is a dense neighborhood with timeless housing stock and residents committed to a strong quality of life. This overwhelmingly African American neighborhood is close to many community assets, including Ottawa Park, The University of Toledo, and downtown Toledo. Its proximity to one of the major rail lines running through Toledo has created opportunities to clean up and re-purpose industrial land for the benefit of residents. A mix of long-term homeowners and landlords work hard to move the neighborhood forward. This combination of elements shows great potential for sustainable investment.
The Garfield neighborhood is a current focus of RISE.
The Garfield neighborhood is East Toledo's front door. In its small, but mighty footprint sits the Main Street commercial district, the historic Waite High School, the beautiful and growing Glass City Metropark, and a hearty residential neighborhood that is home to hundreds. This neighborhood, also growing in diversity, has an older housing stock that needs ongoing maintenance and a desire for more homeowners who are ready to make a long-term commitment. Its "green necklace" of parks and open space is an extraordinary opportunity, and additional greening and beautification within the residential streets can complement the natural beauty. With the support of East Toledo institutions and community partners, Garfield has a bright future and its residents are ready to take the next step in the revitalization.

Our Home Preservation Initiative is your starting point to access RISE services. Our capable Land Bank team will visit your home and provide help on the issues that matter most to you - for free. From there, you can access matching grants and low-cost loans to make key improvements. Fill out our Request A Home Visit form today to get started!
Matching grants are available in RISE Neighborhoods to qualified property owners for home repair projects. The Land Bank may reimburse up to 50% of the cost of your home project. No more than two projects; the largest award is $5,000. Use our matching grant to make lasting investments in one of your biggest assets with the Land Bank's help.
The Land Bank team identifies abandoned properties in RISE Neighborhoods that will be stabilized and renovated - some from top to bottom! These properties are then sold exclusively to homeowners to grow and steady the neighborhood. When properties become available, they are listed for sale on our Properties page.
