COLUMBUS—State Representative Jeffery Rezabek (R-Clayton) today announced that the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board and the Capitol Square Foundation will open their online application process for school transportation grants on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at 9:00 a.m.


The grants are available to help Ohio schools, which receive state funding, defray the cost of field trips to the Ohio Statehouse and are based on one-way mileage from the visiting school to Columbus. There are 25 grants available in each of the following mileage categories, for a total of 75 grants:


• 1 to 50 miles:                    $200
• 51 to 100 miles:                 $300
• 101+ miles:                       $400


Limited to fourth through 12th grade trips during the 2017-2018 school year, the grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and have been known to be awarded within a matter of minutes of the grant application process opening.


“This program is a great opportunity for schools in our community to bring students to the Statehouse and show them how state government works in-person,” said Rezabek. “I want to encourage all of our schools to apply for these transportation grants come September 12th.”
