COLUMBUS—State Rep. Catherine Ingram (D-Cincinnati) today announced the passage of Senate Bill (SB) 163, legislation creating the Habitat for Humanity of Ohio license plate.


Ohio is in need of affordable housing now more than ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the passing of the Habitat for Humanity of Ohio license plate will aid in ensuring Ohio’s most vulnerable have greater access to decent affordable housing. The Habitat for Humanity of Ohio License Plate proceeds will help create a route for additional funding to impact the lives in need of affordable housing,” said Rep. Ingram.


The provision was included in SB 163 as an omnibus amendment with several other license plate creation proposals.
