State Representative Dale Mallory (D-Cincinnati) announced the approval of funding for the Ohio House Finance Agency's Capital
Funding to End Homelessness in Ohio initiative.
Cincinnati, along with seven
other urban Ohio cities, will be eligible to receive funding for local brick
and mortar projects.
"Our community is dedicated to eradicating homelessness in
Cincinnati and helping people get back on their feet after they fall on tough
times," Rep. Mallory said. "But even so, one out of every 79 children in
Hamilton County is homeless. New and renovated facilities to house homeless
citizens will help get even more kids and families off the streets and on their
way to safe and secure living."
Cincinnati - along with Columbus, Cleveland, Akron, Dayton,
Toledo, Canton and Youngstown – will be eligible for one-time capital funding
for area projects.
Cincinnati-area initiatives will be eligible for up to $5
million with a one-to-one funding match.
Projects may include new construction
or the rehabilitation of buildings to develop permanent supportive housing,
transitional housing or emergency shelters. Funding may also be allotted to
projects that renovate and repair existing permanent and transitional housing
facilities that serve homeless youth, victims of domestic violence or
individuals re-entering the community in recovery from substance abuse and for
The initiative is projected to fund approximately 50
development and repair projects to benefit approximately 1,500 individuals.
OHFA will accept complete applications on a rolling basis through June 30,
