COLUMBUS — The Ohio House on Wednesday passed House Bill 614, legislation that allocates $650 million in federal CARES Act relief funds for local governments in Ohio.

The funds are to be used to offset costs faced by local governments directly caused by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Previously approved by the Ohio Senate, the bill now heads to Gov. Mike DeWine’s desk.

“It’s crucial we can provide for our local communities in this time of need when so many have been impacted by COVID-19,” state Rep. Al Cutrona, R-Canfield, said in a news release.

State lawmakers previously approved $350 million in federal CARES Act funds for local governments in June, and $175 million was approved by the state Controlling Board in August.

“With their creativity, hard work and commitment to serving residents, local governments in Mahoning County have shown us government at its finest during this pandemic,” state Rep. Michele Lepore-Hagan, D-Youngstown, said in a news release. “I know how important these dollars are as local budgets face income tax shortfalls while the need for services increases. I was proud to vote yes on this vital allocation of CARES Act dollars.”

The funds approved during Wednesday’s House session are set to be distributed to localities on a per capita basis. Mahoning County will receive $8.2 million; Trumbull County will receive $7.1 million; and Columbiana County will receive $3.6 million.
