COLUMBUS—Details for the newly created Welcome Home Ohio program were recently released to the public, announced State Rep. Scott Oelslager (R-North Canton).  

Guardrails of the program are as follows:

  • $100 million in grants for landbanks to purchase, rehabilitate or build residential properties for eligible Ohioans based on income.
  • $50 million in nonrefundable tax credits for landbanks and developers to use towards qualifying rehabs and new construction once a property is sold. 

“I’m encouraged to see housing initiatives come to fruition in Ohio,” said Oelslager. “This program will play a vital role in providing Ohioans affordable housing options and opportunities to flourish right here in our state.” 

The grant application period is currently open and closes at 11:59pm on February 9, 2024, with rolling applications accepted February 12 through May 31, 2024. 

The Welcome Home Ohio program was established in the state budget and aims to improve affordable housing throughout the state.
