State Representative Louis W Blessing III (R-Colerain) 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 29th 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.


“This is a great opportunity for local communities to get assistance with projects pertaining to public safety,” said Blessing. “It is important that police, fire and EMS providers have what they need to help protect the public. These grants will help them to achieve that goal.”
