Economic Development & Community Services

Economic Development & Community Services works to improve the quality of life for Parma’s residents and create a business friendly environment through the implementation of neighborhood and economic development programs.

For businesses, the City of Parma offers a wide array of local tax incentives and rebates on new construction, renovation, relocation and expansion. The City of Parma will coordinate additional loans and grants offered through Cuyahoga County and the State of Ohio on behalf or in cooperation with the business.

For residents and neighborhoods, the City of Parma offers grants that assist in home improvement projects, home purchases, property maintenance, preventative maintenance, utility disconnection and rent or mortgage payment support. To qualify for these local programs, a family must be designated as low/moderate income – based upon the size of the family and their total annual income – or as a senior (65 years of age or older). Refer to the following table to determine initial eligibility:
