Local Infrastructure Funding from Ohio Public Works

The Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) provides local 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 provides administrative support for OPWC’s District 3, comprising Franklin County. MORPC annually reviews and scores applications for the district’s Public Works Integrating Committee, which recommends project awards for OPWC approval.

FY25 application deadline: September 1, 2023, by 5 p.m.
