Clean Ohio Assistance Fund grants support brownfield redevelopment of Ohio's urban areas, and are made possible through the Ohio Bipartisan Job Stimulus Plan.

  • Cleveland will receive a $299,924 grant for the costs associated with Phase II Environmental Assessment on the Miceli-Lograsso Development Company expansion property. The assessment will determine the environmental suitability of the property and the possible need for remediation.

 

  • Kent will receive a $244,870 grant for the costs associated with Phase II Environmental Assessment on the AMETEK Industrial Products property. The assessment will determine the environmental suitability of the property and the possible need for remediation.

 

  • Youngstown will receive a $657,396 grant for the costs associated with demolition and remediation on the former Weatherbee Coat Factory. The activities will prepare the site for redevelopment by Valley Food, Inc.

 

  • The Summit County Port Authority will receive a $269,382 grant for the costs associated with Phase II Environmental Assessment on the Anaconda Road property in the City of Akron. The assessment will determine the environmental suitability of the property and the possible need for remediation.

"These Clean Ohio grants are a critical step to redeveloping locations for future use," Patt-McDaniel said. "This enables Ohio's communities and businesses to fully understand the opportunities available to spur job creation and further economic activity for the state."

Beyond assessment, the Clean Ohio Assistance Fund assists key redevelopment projects with environmental cleanup activities, as is the case with the City of Youngstown.

The Clean Ohio Assistance Fund is a program within the Clean Ohio Fund, which restores, protects, and connects Ohio's important natural and urban places by preserving green space and farmland, improving outdoor recreation, and cleaning up brownfields to encourage redevelopment and revitalize communities.

The Clean Ohio Fund is part of the Ohio Bipartisan Job Stimulus Plan, which aims to create new jobs while laying the foundation for future economic prosperity.

As part of the Plan, voters approved $400 million for the Clean Ohio Fund.
