State Representative John Becker (R-Union Township) 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 65th 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.


“Public Safety is core government role,” said Becker. “These grants exemplify a working partnership between the State and local governments. I encourage Clermont County officials to apply.”
