Ohio Capital Journal |

Grants were awarded to 951 schools.

Awards ranged from about $1,000 for schools like Arlington Local School District in Hancock County, Hamilton County’s educational service center, and Constellation Schools in Northeast Ohio, to more than $151,000 for schools like Girard City School District in Trumbull County, Franklin County’s Reynoldsburg City Schools, Lucas County’s Springfield Local School District and Federal Hocking Local School District in Athens County.

Lt. Gov. Jon Husted said in a press conference announcing the awards that schools who requested less than $20,000 would get their entire amount if eligible. Those who requested more than $20,000 would receive the first $20,000, with the rest awarded at 60% “in order to ensure every qualifying school receives some support,” Husted said.
