Three Northwest Ohio communities have received grants of $100,000 each. Ten grants and three loans totaling nearly $2.5 million from the Local Government Innovation Fund were awarded by the Ohio Development Services Agency to assist efficiency and collaboration projects across the state.
The Henry County General Health District received a grant for the shared public health services project in Northwest Ohio. The Putnam County Commissioners office was awarded a grant for the establishment of a regional water & sewer district. The Wood County Port Authority received a grant for the Rossford city and schools shared administrative offices and services project.
The Local Government Innovation Council met Dec. 5 to approve funding for the 13 projects. The Local Government Innovation Fund consists of two programs, the Local Government Innovation Program and Local Government Efficiency Program, which assist communities with shared services and efficiency projects.
“These funds help communities use every penny they have as wisely as possible,” said David Goodman, director of the Ohio Development Services Agency.
