Canalway Partners co-manages the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area, which has awarded many competitive grants through the Ohio & Erie Canalway Association strategic grants program. Some awardees include:
Broadway Slavic Village Gateway Public Art Project
The Ohio & Erie Canalway Association awarded funds to the Broadway Slavic Village Development Corporation to create “Cycle of Arches”, the public art piece at E.49th and Broadway in Cleveland. The public art, by Johnathan Kurtz, is positioned along the designated Ohio & Erie Canalway America’s Byway and serves as the entryway for Slavic Villages downtown district, which stretches down Broadway to the headquarters of Third Federal. The organization is highly respected for their ingenuity and dedication. This is just one more example.
Irishtown Bend Study
We are contributing funds to the Port of Cleveland for a study that gathers geotechnical data to help determine the proper action necessary to stabilize the Irishtown Bend hillside.
Cleveland Centre Historic District
In 2013, Canalway Partners worked with the Downtown Cleveland Alliance and Historic Warehouse District to contribute funds to a study that led to the creation of the Cleveland Center National Register Historic District, located in Downtown Cleveland’s Flats. This designation promotes development by opening funding opportunities through historic tax credits and easements.
Canal Exploration Center
Canalway Partners worked with the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the America’s Byways program to obtain funding to create the interactive Canal Exploration Center that opened in July of 2014.
Mill Creek Connector
Canalway Partners has been involved with this trail project, starting with a trail connection from Garfield Reservation and the Mill Creek Falls. The Mill Creek Connector trail has been the beneficiary of three grants provided through the Canalway Association’s Strategic Grant Program.
