DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Hundreds of thousands of dollars will help fix up houses in two Dayton neighborhoods.

The Dayton City Commission approved $150,000 to spend in the McCook Field and Old North Dayton neighborhoods.

“These initiatives can make a big difference to homeowners and neighborhoods in the city,” said Aaron Sorrell, Director of the Dayton’s Department of Planning and Community Development. “The organizations managing the projects are making great strides in accomplishing our goals for our U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grants.”

The money is part of a federal grant that helps repair and paint homes and improve their energy efficiency.

“We are pleased to get these projects underway to support residential repairs throughout Dayton,” said Mayor Nan Whaley. “The improvements will not only boost curb appeal, but will also allow residents and families to live in safer, more cost-effective homes.”
