Neighborhood Partnership announces $10K donation

Staff report


Chemical Bank has donated $10,000 to a local jobs program that employs area residents to help revitalize neighborhoods, the Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership announced Thursday.

“We at Chemical Bank are devoted to the growth and development of the communities we serve,” said Ky Pegues, Chemical Bank Community Reinvestment Act market manager, in a statement. “TNP does an excellent job of renovating and revitalizing Warren neighborhoods.”

The “Building a Better Warren” program hires low- and moderate-income workers to work on tasks such as property rehabilitation and ongoing property maintenance, according to a news release. The program also partners with the Trumbull County Land Reutilization Corporation to help rehabilitate properties in the land corporation’s inventory.

“This program is all about putting our residents to work in quality, year-round jobs with revitalizing our neighborhoods,” said TNP Executive Director Matt Martin. “We have merged the need for blight remediation with the need for meaningful workforce development, and we have leveraged multiple resources and partnerships to create this opportunity.”

The program offers health coverage to employees after 90 days of full-time employment.
