The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (ODRC) recently released the application process for the $50 million jail construction and renovation program contained in the most recent state capital appropriations bill (HB 687).
All of the necessary information, including program announcement, application and supporting documents can be access through the following link. The deadline to apply for funding is November 30, 2022.
CCAO strongly encourages members to apply for these grant funds. While $50 million will certainly not satisfy every need, it is critical that state officials see the large demand that exists for these funds. This will help build support for additional rounds of funding in the future.
Members with questions about the grant program can contact CCAO Legislative Counsel Kyle Petty.
