Several key community
organizations came together to develop the Community Properties
Initiative. Each organization is an advocate of neighborhood
revitalization and community development. Each was instrumental
in shaping the vision that Community Properties of Ohio
Management Services has embraced. In addition to the Community Properties initiative, CPO manages additional properties on behalf of our valued housing and development partners.

$1 Billion in private investment for LIHTC projects and

Campus Partners for Community Urban Redevelopment was
created in 1995 by The Ohio State University, in cooperation
with the city of Columbus. Campus Partners’ main
goal is to lead the revitalization of the University District
