Funding Opportunities

  • 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.

  • BroadbandOhio: MARCS Tower Pilot Program
    Funding Opportunity Categories: Infrastructure

    The state of Ohio through the Office of BroadbandOhio is launching a pilot program to provide low-cost internet service to Ohio Appalachian communities using the state’s Multi-Agency Radio Communications System (MARCS) towers. The pilot program will provide grants to Internet Service Providers to offset the monthly cost of access to the MARCS towers. Awardees will enter into a grant with the Ohio Development Services Agency to offset the costs of access to the tower(s) and a license agreement with the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) granting the right to place equipment on the tower(s). Companies will then provide internet service to businesses and households in the community served by the tower. The grant will only cover the monthly costs associated with the tower access. Applicants should note the following: • Access to power will be negotiated with DAS separately. • The grantee will be responsible for any engineering analysis necessary to make sure that the tower can hold the equipment and will be responsible for any up-front cost of reinforcing the tower to hold the equipment. • The grantee will be responsible for obtaining its own backhaul service. Grantees will be required to establish service by October 1, 2021. Visit https://www.development.ohio.gov/bs/marcstowerpilot.htm for the MARCS Tower locations that are part of the pilot program.
