CINCINNATI, OH (Great Health Divide) - Gov. Mike DeWine signed a bill into law Tuesday that will provide Ohioans millions of dollars for both rent and utility assistance.
Ohio House Bill 167 provides $465 million to the Development Services Agency to fund emergency rental assistance and utility assistance.
State Rep. Scott Oelslager (R-North Canton) led the bill through the House as the primary sponsor of the legislation, according to a news release from his office.
“I am very pleased with the due diligence over in the Senate on swiftly passing this utility and rental aid we’re providing Ohioans who desperately need it due to financial burdens from the pandemic,” said Oelslager. “I’m proud to have had the opportunity to help push this bill through both chambers, and I anticipate it being signed into law.”
