COLUMBUS – State Rep. Juanita Brent (D-Cleveland) yesterday voted in favor of House Bill (HB) 377, bipartisan legislation to release the second, $442 million batch of local government funding from President Biden’s American Rescue Plan to Ohio’s cities, villages and townships serving 50,000 people or less. Communities of more than 50,000 people receive their allocation directly from the federal government. 

HB 377 brings the total distribution to local governments to $844 million. The distribution amounts are in accordance with a population-based formula from the American Rescue Plan Act and guidance issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

“Unfortunately, the state has cut the Local Government Fund (LGF) that supplies cities with much-needed funds to support essential public services. When the LGF was cut, municipalities were bled dry. The American Rescue Plan giving funds to local municipalities is a much-needed injection in a time of great need,” said Rep. Brent.

The local governments in the Ohio House District 12 will receive the following funds:

City of Bedford – $ 655,046.66
City of Bedford Heights - $ 550,035.17
Village of Highland Hills - $ 50,481.24
City of Maple Heights - $ 1,160,963.29
City of Mayfield Heights - $ 175,474.89
Village of North Randall - $ 51,953.61
Orange Village - $ 173,003.41
City of Pepper Pike - $ 332,860.67
City of Warrensville Heights - $ 689,279.25

House Bill 377 now heads to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
