COLUMBUS – State Representative Jamie Callender (R-Concord) was pleased to support House Bill 377, which appropriates additional funding to the Office of Budget and Management to disburse to local governments in accordance with the American Rescue Plan Act.
The American Rescue Plan is legislation crafted by Congress to aid local governments throughout the United States with federal dollars.
Townships and municipalities were excluded from the most recent congressional estimates for recovery funding but were included in previous versions. This issue is not unique to Ohio; communities in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota are all facing this problem as well.
In the 61st district, the following communities will receive the below allocations:
- City of Kirtland - $ 358,206.46
- Village of Kirtland Hills - $ 33,864.50
- City of Willoughby Hills - $ 502,340.92
- Village of Madison - $ 166,482.92
- Village of North Perry - $ 46,484.81
- Village of Perry - $ 85,502.60
- Village of Waite Hill - $ 23,926.01
- Concord Township - $ 954,621.27
- Leroy Township - $ 170,794.86
- Madison Township - $ 819,373.62
- Painesville Township - $ 885,419.90
- Perry Township - $ 339,013.07
House Bill 377 will next head to the Ohio Senate then to Governor DeWine for his approval so the funds can be dispersed.
