The zones are designed to help improve health for city residents as well as assist people with various issues in the community.
The city is spending $2,466,488 in American Rescue Plan funding for the program and received a $450,000 Ohio Department of Health grant.
The four offices for the health improvement zones will be located at Price Memorial AME Zion Church, 920 Dryden Ave., on the East Side; Ohev Beth Shalom, 119 Elm St., on the North Side; Needles Eye Christian Life Center, 74 Kenmore Ave., on the South Side; and Grace Evangelistic Temple, 2214 Mahoning Ave., on the West Side.
A community health advocate supervisor to oversee the program and community health advocates for each of the four sides of the city were hired for the health improvement zones program, Health Commissioner Erin Bishop said.
The health advocates will serve as liaisons to residents for issues, including property conditions, park space and abandoned tire cleanups as well as implement programs to improve health for city residents.
