More Than $30 Million Available for Public Works Projects in Franklin County
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) is accepting applications for financial assistance from local communities to maintain and improve basic infrastructure systems.
The Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) has allocated more than $30 million for state fiscal year 2025 in loans and grants for local infrastructure projects in District 3/Franklin County through the State Capital Improvement Program (SCIP) and the Local Transportation Improvement Program (LTIP).
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 funding awards for projects that are scheduled to begin construction between July 1, 2024 through June 30, 2025.
MORPC provides administrative support to the Public Works Integrating Committee for District 3, including processing and reviewing grant and loan requests from local governments. After evaluating and scoring the projects, the committee will create a prioritized list of projects that will be submitted to the OPWC, which will provide final project approval.
Counties, cities, villages, townships, and special infrastructure districts located in Franklin County interested in applying for funding should contact Tom Graham, OPWC District 3 Infrastructure Liaison, for assistance by calling 614.233.4193 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
