State Representative Tim Schaffer (R-Lancaster) today announced information regarding the upcoming application process for round two of the Local Government Safety Capital Grant program.

Created by the Ohio House of Representatives and included in the state budget for fiscal years 2016 and 2017, these grants are designed to help fund public safety projects in local communities throughout Ohio, including those in the 77th House District in Fairfield County.

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. Grants can be as much as $100,000 per individual political subdivision. $10 million in total funding is available statewide.

“These grants are a great resource and I encourage our local governments and public safety agencies in Fairfield County to take advantage of this program,” Schaffer said. “This is an opportunity to help them carry out their important mission of maintaining and improving public safety in Fairfield County.”

Applications must be submitted online and will be accepted October 31, 2016 through January 6, 2017, with final awards being announced in Spring 2017. The Local Government Innovation Council will be the final approver of all grants.
