COLUMBUS—State Representative Steve Arndt (R-Port Clinton) today announced that the Capital Square Review and Advisory Board and the Capitol Square Foundation will open their online application process for school transportation grants on Wednesday, September 5 at 9:00 a.m.

The grants are available to help Ohio schools, which receive state funding, cover 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 4th through 12th grade trips during the 2018-2019 school year, the grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. The application process will remain open until all funds have been awarded.

“I believe that visiting the Statehouse provides a unique educational opportunity to learn how the legislature works,” said Arndt. “I greatly enjoy representing Erie and Ottawa counties, and I hope to share my passion for the legislature with students from the district when they come to visit the Statehouse. These grants will go a long way to defray transportation costs that may occur when traveling the distance to Columbus.”
