Project Title & Description
CLEVELAND TENANTS ORGANIZATION (CTO)
This grant action will complete an Environmental Justice Small Grant project in Cleveland, Ohio which will educate landlord and tenant populations in the City of Cleveland, Ohio about safer and more effective bed bug control options. The purpose of this project is to reduce the misuse of pesticides by tenants and landlords to treat bed bug infestations. This project will (1) train outreach staff to work with landlord-tenant populations in addressing prevention and treatment issues surrounding bed bug infestations and (2) educate landlords, property managers and tenants in subsidized multi unit family housing developments about the prevention of bed bug infestations and integrated pest management methods to more safely control and treat bed bug populations in rental housing units.
