What We Do

Since 1972, CityWide has served as a non-profit organization with a mission to strengthen the Dayton area through strategic economic and community development. CityWide develops programs and services to address Dayton’s need for economic growth and viable, attractive neighborhoods. For many years our core services have focused on providing gap financing to attract and expand business development in the Region; support development of large-scale neighborhood revitalization efforts; and engage in catalytic real estate development. CityWide achieves its mission through three major program areas: Lending & Development Finance, Community Development, and Real Estate & Downtown Housing.
