State Rep. Dan Ramos today announced $200,000 in state grants for Habitat for Humanity in Ohio, including projects in Lorain County. Funding is made possible through the Target of Opportunity Grant Program, a program that funds organizations that create, expand and improve housing for low and moderate-income families.

“Habitat for Humanity provides life-changing opportunities to low and moderate-income families not only in our community, but in communities across Ohio and across the world,” said Ramos. “Habitat chapters step up, create communities of caring and help put families back on their feet. Every Ohioan deserves a quality job and a good roof over their head. Habitat for Humanity is one of a number of organizations working hard each and every day to make that a reality.”

Habitat for Humanity will distribute $180,000 of the grant funds to 14 affiliates across the state, which are expected to construct or rehabilitate 20 single-family homes for as many low-income families. Projects will leverage more than $1.2 million in local funds and donations of labor and materials. The remaining $20,000 will be used administratively.

Ramos Proposes Tuition Coverage For Ohio College Students


As Ohio college students don their caps and gowns this month, many will leave school with mountains of debt for four-year degrees. In fact, Ohio families and students face the highest burden of student loan debt in the nation, with the Buckeye State ranking 45th nationally for college affordability. With college out of reach for too many families and students, state Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today introduced legislation to cover 90 percent of the cost for students to attend public college in Ohio. The Ohio Lets Everyone Achieve Right Now (LEARN) tax credit would make Ohio the first state to make college truly affordable for all students.
