COLUMBUS – State Rep. Lauren McNally (D-Youngstown) today announced $200,000 of state funding for the Columbiana County Community Action Agency as a part of the Ohio Department of Development Housing Assistance Program. The funding will be used to help improve housing and provide down payment assistance for low- and moderate-income Ohioans.  

“Housing stability is crucial to a healthy and happy community and I’m happy that the state has included our district in this round of funding,” said Rep. McNally. “These dollars will ensure our residents can live safely and with dignity in their own homes.”

The Ohio Department of Development awarded a total of $7.3 million to 1,600 Ohioans under this program. These grant awards will be used by local non-profit organizations across the state help residents with housing opportunities and to improve housing conditions. The funding comes from Ohio Housing Trust Fund dollars being utilized by the Housing Assistance Grant Program. 

Columbiana County Community Action Agency is one of 23 other non-profit agencies receiving a grant award. This grant award of $200,000 will help provide 40 house repairs to income-eligible homeowners. Local non-profits can use these funds to contract local construction companies, home repairers, and allows for investments of $5,000 per home on down payment assistance and associated costs and an additional $500 for homebuyer education.
