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

"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."

projects that renovate and repair existing permanent and transitional housing
facilities that serve homeless youth, victims of domestic violence or
