State Rep. Haraz N. Ghanbari (R-Perrysburg) supported $500,000 in funding coming to Wood County through the Ohio Building Demolition and Site Revitalization Program. Awards for the first phase of the program were just recently announced.

The program was supported through the state operating budget passed last year with Ghanbari’s support in the Ohio House and will fund the demolition of commercial and residential buildings that are in need of repairs. 

“We have properties that need upkeep and repairs that are going to be completed with the money supported by this program,” Ghanbari said. “This is an investment tool we’re using to revitalize Wood County and many other parts of Ohio to bring further growth and development to our communities.”

Under the state operating budget bill, it allocated a total of approximately $150 million in grants to be dispersed. The first round of allocations includes $42.1 million and was set aside for all 88 Ohio counties that requested up to $500,000. The remaining funds after June 30, 2022 are available through grants on a first-come, first-served basis.
