COLUMBUS— Today the Ohio State Controlling Board approved funding for important projects in Hamilton County. Through capital funds given by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD), Hamilton County will receive funds to purchase new and improve existing facilities in the community.
The news is welcomed by State Representative Cindy Abrams (R-Harrison), who advocated for these funds during negotiations over Ohio’s capital budget for FY 2023-2024, House Bill 597.
“This funding is so important for the further development of these facilities,” Abrams said. “I appreciate the dedication of my colleagues to bring these funds back to Hamilton County to not only improve the facilities themselves but give more opportunity to those who use them.”
Hamilton County is set to receive $186,480 to purchase accessible housing and $202,450 for renovation projects in FY 2023.
The Ohio State Controlling Board is the financial legislative oversight for capital and operating expenditures by state agencies. The next controlling board meeting is scheduled for Oct. 3.
