Ohio Build Announces Second Round of Water Infrastructure Grants

Earlier this week, Governor Mike DeWine and First Lady Fran DeWine visited South Charleston and Wilmington, respectively, where they announced the second round of Ohio BUILDS water infrastructure grants. Last week,grants totaling more than $93 million were announced for infrastructure projects impacting 60 counties. Tuesday's announcement included projects in the 28 Ohio counties that did not receive funding in the first round. 

"It's astonishing to me that there are communities in Ohio today where it's difficult to get clean water. For our people to thrive and for our communities to grow, clean water and reliable infrastructure are an absolute must," said Governor DeWine. "There is a tremendous need for water infrastructure upgrades all over our state, and through Ohio BUILDS, we're funding projects that will be life-changing in some communities." 

A third round of grant recipients will be announced in the future.
