COLUMBUS—State Senator Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) today applauded the announcement by The Ohio Department of Development of significant investments in housing and infrastructure across the state, including over $1 million for Medina County.

The City of Medina will receive a $700,000 grant to rehabilitate seven owner-occupied homes, repair 10 owner-occupied homes, provide rental assistance to 10 households, and will include a fair housing component. $492,000 will be granted through the Critical Infrastructure Plan to assist the village of Lodi with constructing a bridge to combat significant flooding issues in Lodi Community Park.

"When housing and infrastructure needs are met, communities can flourish and grow," Romanchuk said. "With our state economy set to boom, we must make sure our communities are in a stable and reliable position for expansion."

Through the Community Housing Impact and Preservation (CHIP) program, 28 communities across Ohio will receive a total of $20 million in funding to improve affordable housing and provide homeownership and rental assistance for low and moderate-income families. Additionally, $10.6 million will be awarded for Neighborhood Revitalization and Critical Infrastructure grants to 20 Ohio communities.
