State Representative Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) today announced information regarding the application process for the Local Government Safety Capital Grant. Initiated by the Ohio House of Representatives and included in the state operating budget for fiscal years 2016 and 2017, these grants can help to fund public safety projects in local communities throughout Ohio, including those in the 88th House District.


Funding for eligible projects must be used for purchasing vehicles, equipment, facilities and/or systems utilized by police, fire, and/or EMS providers to enhance public safety. The total request amount for projects is $100,000 per individual political subdivision.


“Supporting our local partners with this grant opportunity is another tool to make our communities safe, desirable places to live, work and raise a family,” Rep. Reineke said. “I highly encourage townships, villages, cities and counties to submit this application to enhance the public safety programs each jurisdiction provides to its citizens. The safety of our neighbors is a top priority of mine, and I am pleased to see the work we did in the state biennial budget come to fruition for our local partners with this program.”


Applications must be submitted online and will be accepted February 16, 2016 through March 21, 2016, with final awards being made in May 2016. The Local Government Innovation Council will be the final approver of all grants.
