Resources & Toolkit

  • Keep Cincinnati Beautiful (KCB) developed the Blight Index as a way for communities to visually assess their neighborhood and to measure change over time. This Blight Index is based on Keep America Beautiful’s Litter Index, which KCB uses frequently to assess the amount of litter in Cincinnati as well as to measure the effectiveness of particular programs and projects.

  • The Cincinnati Community ToolBank is a nonprofit tool lending program that provides fellow not-for-profit organizations with year-round access to an inventory of tools for use in volunteer projects, special events, facility repairs, grounds maintenance and much more. They provide tools to enhance the charitable sector’s capacity to serve, facilitating hands-on volunteerism in the greater Cincinnati area.
