COLUMBUS – State Rep. Marilyn John (R-Richland County) has announced $141,383 in funding has been approved by the State Controlling Board for various community capital assistance projects throughout Richland County.

“I supported the legislation that’s going to make enhancements and improvements to various facilities to aid individuals with developmental disabilities here in our communities,” John said.

The funding is for community capital assistance projects through the Community Capital Assistance Program, which administers funds made available by the state used to develop community housing for people with developmental disabilities who are or will be receiving various waiver services.

These funds will be used for projects involving the construction of a new home, purchase of existing community homes, and for renovation and accessibility projects for existing homes. The funding stems from House Bill 687, the state’s most recent capital budget that John also cosponsored and supported this year.

The next State Controlling Meeting is scheduled for Oct. 3.
