Grants, Partnerships & Plans

JEDDS – What are they? Joint Economic Development Districts (JEDDs) provide a mechanism by which Ohio municipalities and townships can cooperate to foster development activities without modifications to jurisdiction boundaries. Through JEDD contracts, Green and Colerain Townships are able to use Cheviot’s ability to levy income taxes for the employees in specified township developments. Below are the JEDDS Cheviot has with Green and Colerain Townships.
