COLUMBUS – Rep. Jessica E. Miranda (D-Forest Park) 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.

“I commend President Biden’s American Rescue Plan for returning local funds to our communities,” said Rep. Miranda. “While it is reassuring that we are putting more local government funds towards Ohio’s cities, villages, and townships, this is only one-time funding from the federal government. Ohio must do more to restore the Local Government Fund.”

The local governments in Ohio House District 28 will receive the following funds:

City of Blue Ash – $650,576.97
City of Deer Park - $292,686.02
City of Forest Park - $977,180.06
City of Madeira - $486,144.85
City of Montgomery - $571,700.03
City of Reading - $541,411.29
City of Sharonville - $719,567.99
City of Springdale - $587,159.91
Village of Evendale - $143,398.27
Village of Glendale - $114,687.06
Village of Greenhills – 187,569.35
Springfield Township - $1,888,103.51
Sycamore Township - $1,027,661.30

House Bill 377 now heads to the Ohio Senate for further consideration
