COLUMBUS – State Rep. Michele Grim (D-Toledo) today announced that the Lucas County Land Reutilization Corporation has received $1,340,000 from the Ohio Department of Development’s Welcome Home Ohio Program to purchase multiple residential properties and rehabilitate them.  

“The struggle to access affordable housing is one that many Ohioans are unfortunately all too familiar with. The Welcome Home program and distribution of funds to Lucas County is a great step towards more Ohioans accessing the housing they need. Ohio House Democrats will continue to advocate and fight for funding at the state level that makes programs like this possible,” said Rep. Grim.

Lucas County, and communities across the state, are in need of affordable housing. This funding will empower local land banks to purchase homes that were already in need of remodeling and ensure that income-eligible residents only can access the housing.
