The CDCA provides member support through the back office program. Vendors are familiar with the CDC structure and non-profit best practices. They offer discounted services to our members, and the CDCA also provides a cost supplement through grants from PNC Bank and from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation. Members agree to pay the full cost of the vendor, and are reimbursed from the CDCA for 40% of the cost, up to a maximum amount based on available grant funds. CDC’s must have a valid contract with the CDCA to be eligible for the grant money.
