Approximately $27 Million Available in Franklin County

    June 27, 2019
    To improve roads, bridges, culverts, water supply, wastewater & solid waste

    During Program Year 34, the Ohio Public Works Commission will allocate approximately $27 million in loans and grants for District 3/Franklin County projects through the Ohio Public Works Commission’s State Capital Improvements Program (SCIP) and the Local Transportation Improvements Program (LTIP).  These programs provide financial assistance to local communities for the improvement of their basic infrastructure systems.  Eligible projects include improvements to roads, bridges, culverts, water supply systems, wastewater systems, storm water collection systems, and solid waste disposal facilities.  The Public Works Integrating Committee for District 3 will recommend projects for both SCIP and LTIP for the project year beginning July 1, 2020.

    “Thank you to the constituents who have provided this funding. We are excited to take action and promise to put it to good use in improving our transportation, water supply, and wastewater infrastructure.”
    Cornell R. Robertson, P.E., P.S., Franklin County Engineer and the OPWC District 3 Integrating Committee Chair

    Counties, cities, villages, townships and special infrastructure districts located in Franklin County that are interested in applying for funding can contact Nathaniel Vogt, infrastructure development manager for the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC), at 614-233-4183 or for assistance.  Completed applications are due Monday, September 9, 2019, by 5:00 p.m. for all applicants in District 3.

    “We look forward to helping local agencies maintain and improve their infrastructure,” Vogt said. “We are fortunate that Ohio has these programs to fund local infrastructure projects.”

    MORPC provides administrative support to the Public Works Integrating Committee for District 3, including processing and reviewing project grant and loan requests from local governments.  After evaluating and scoring the projects, the committee will create a list of high priority projects that are submitted to the Ohio Public Works Commission.  Final project approval is given by the Ohio Public Works Commission.
