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 $700,000 for the city of Shelby to rehabilitate six owner-occupied homes, repair 10 owner-occupied homes, and will include a fair housing component.

"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.
