  • CARES Act - Coronavirus Relief Fund Local Government Assistance Program
    Funding Opportunity Categories: COVID-19

    The Office of Budget and Management (OBM), in accordance with HB 481, is distributing Coronavirus Relief Funds provided to the state from the US Department of Treasury as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act ("CARES Act"). OBM is currently accepting registrations for the Local Government Assistance Program from counties and jurisdictions. Registrations enable the recipient of funds access to the grants portal to report on funds as required by OBM and HB 481. Funds must be used in accordance with the requirements of Section 5001 of the "Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act," as described in 42 U.S.C. 801(d) and must adhere to guidance published by the US Department of Treasury and OBM. Resolutions, as required by HB 481, may be submitted to OBM via e-mail at grants@obm.ohio.gov. While the CRF disbursements for cities, villages, and townships will flow from the state through county auditors, OBM considers each local government to be a subrecipient of the state and will structure reporting and monitoring that way.

  • CARES Act - Coronavirus Relief Fund – Provider Relief Payments
    Funding Opportunity Categories: COVID-19

    The State of Ohio is distributing Coronavirus Relief Funds provided to the state from the US Department of Treasury as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act ("CARES Act"). The Ohio Department of Medicaid (MCD) prepared funding allocations to provide critically-needed economic support to several provider types including: Skilled Nursing Facilities; Private Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICFs/IID); MyCare Waiver Providers; Ohio Home Care Waiver Providers (OHCW); PASSPORT Waiver Providers; Home Health Waiver Providers; Assisted Living Providers; Critical Access, Rural, Distressed Hospitals; and Behavioral Health Providers. These funds will be distributed through OBM and not through any existing state health and human service agency line item. While recognizing the importance of all health care and community support services, these funds will be distributed to providers that are more heavily relied upon for essential services through the Medicaid program. Provider relief payments will be made by OBM to providers upon completion of registration and certification online through OBM's Ohio Grants Partnership website. To register for this economic support relief payment, a Provider must have a valid Medicaid Provider Number, National Provider Identification Number, Tax Identification Number and/or Ohio Department of Health Residential Care Facility License Number. For providers that have a DUNS (Dun and Bradstreet) number, then that will be required to be entered as well. Those providers that do not have a DUNS should enter “0” in the field to ensure completion of the registration. Providers that enter a “0” and receive a payment of over $50,000 will be required to secure a DUNS and register the number with the System of Award Management (SAM) within 30 days of receipt of funds. That number must be e-mailed to CRFprovider@obm.ohio.gov with the subject Provider DUNS Information. Providers will be contacted if this information is not received as it impacts federal reporting by the state. Registrations will be approved, and payments made based on information provided from the Ohio Office of Medicaid in coordination with the Ohio Department of Aging, Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities, and Ohio Department of Mental Health. Providers who are eligible under multiple types should only register once; select one “organization” type and list the others in the appropriate question. The state of Ohio has determined that these payments are necessary to respond to the impact of the COVID-19 health emergency on our state’s critical systems of care providers. The funding is being disbursed based on calculations of determined need as assessed by the state of Ohio. Payments will be made to critical providers who have experienced business interruptions and increased costs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Provider relief funds can be used to continue to provide services and to address costs related to business interruption and increased costs resulting from the COVID-19 health emergency. Please refer to the Guidance and FAQs regarding maintaining proper documentation for potential future reporting requirements.

    Funding Opportunity Categories: COVID-19

  • Coronavirus Relief Funds - Adult Day Service and Senior Center Provider Relief
    Funding Opportunity Categories: COVID-19

    The State of Ohio is distributing Coronavirus Relief Funds provided to the state from the US Department of Treasury as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act ("CARES Act"). The Ohio Department of Aging is accepting applications to provide critically needed economic support and grants to Adult Day Service Facilities and Senior Centers who were impacted by public health orders and increased costs due to the pandemic. These funds will be distributed through the Ohio Office of Budget and Management at the direction of the Ohio Department of Aging. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted providers across our state, and these payments are therefore necessary expenditures to compensate for business interruptions and to comply with health orders and related response activities necessary due to the public health emergency. Adult Day Service Facilities and Senior Centers were required to discontinue in-person service delivery in March 2020 pursuant to the Health Director's order. On August 31, 2020, the Director of the Department of Health issued a revised order permitting facility based services to begin on September 21, 2020 if they meet certain safety standards, including reduced capacity and spacing, sanitation, signage and communication, facility standards, activity requirements and staffing protocols. Both types of facilities were impacted during the pandemic due to the high degree of susceptibility to COVID-19 and the congregate nature of the services provided to the public. Providers in this sector have incurred significant losses, continue to incur losses, and are experiencing additional costs due to the pandemic. Providers that are Adult Day Service Facilities and Senior Centers should apply for each separately.

Local Fair Economic Support

Ohio leaders recognize that county and independent fairs are so very important to the communities they serve and to the young people in 4-H and FFA, who have livestock, as well as non-livestock projects. Governor DeWine, Lt. Gov. Husted, House Speaker Householder, and Senate President Obhof have established that it is necessary to provide Coronavirus Relief Funding to County and Independent Fairs in Ohio to ensure that fairs are conducted in a safe manner, consistent with good health practices necessitated by COVID-19. The leaders of Ohio government have determined that the level of necessary funding is $50,000 for each fair that conducts a junior fair during calendar year 2020 and $15,000 for each fair that does not conduct a junior fair during calendar year 2020. This economic support is necessary to protect the health and safety of Ohioans due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In exchange for receiving a payment, each fair receiving Coronavirus Relief Funds agrees to conduct activities in accordance with public health requirements outlined by Exhibit A in the letter from the leaders to Fair Board members dated June 9, 2020. Additionally, please note that the Ohio Department of Health Director’s Order on June 16, 2020 Reopening County Fairs and Animal Exhibitions, with Exceptions, establishes requirements for social distancing, sanitization, and other sector-specific requirements that are necessary in order to contain the spread of COVID-19.
