The Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) provides state grants and loans to local governments for public infrastructure projects. MORPC provides administrative support for OPWC’s District 3, comprising Franklin County. MORPC reviews and scores applications for the district’s Public Works Integrating Committee, which recommends project awards and submits them to the OPWC for approval.
OPWC provides infrastructure funding through the State Capital Improvements Program (SCIP) and the Local Transportation Improvement Program (LTIP). Local subdivisions, such as counties, municipal corporations, townships, sanitary districts or regional water and sewer districts, are eligible to apply. MORPC conducts an annual application and selection process, with applications due in September for SCIP and LTIP funding available after July 1 of the following year.
