Since we began our on-the-ground work in Cleveland in 2016, ioby has supported more than 30 resident leaders to plan, fund, and build positive change in neighborhoods across the city. Together, these leaders have raised more than $100,000 in small donations to make Cleveland neighborhoods safer, greener, more livable and more fun.

We know that the best community projects are not solo endeavors - real change means collaboration, coordination, and teamwork. But we also know how daunting it can feel to work with city government for the first time. That’s why we developed this guide, to make it easier to connect and work with city officials to make our neighborhoods safer, greener, more livable and more fun!
