COLUMBUS – State Rep. Catherine Ingram (D-Cincinnati) yesterday voted in favor of House Bill (HB) 377, bipartisan legislation to release the second, $442 million batch of local government funding from President Biden’s American Rescue Plan to Ohio’s cities, villages and townships serving 50,000 people or less. Communities of more than 50,000 people receive their allocation directly from the federal government.
HB 377 brings the total distribution to local governments to $844 million. The distribution amounts are in accordance with a population-based formula from the American Rescue Plan Act and guidance issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
“It is important for all of the state’s municipalities to be able to have the revenue and input to continue the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Rep. Ingram.
The local governments in Ohio House District 32 will receive the following funds:
City of Mt. Healthy - $1, 408.46
City of North College Hill - $1,941.02
Springfield Township - $7,507.75
House Bill 377 now heads to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
