The District 18 Ohio Public Works Commission Liaison reminds potential applicants and interested parties that the deadline for submission of the State Capital Improvement Plan (SCIP)/Local Transportation Improvement Plan (LTIP) grant applications, is Friday, Aug. 31, 2018.

The State Capital Improvement Program and the Local Transportation Improvement Program were created to assist in financing local public infrastructure improvements, including roads, guardrails, culverts, bridges, storm sewers, and water and sanitary sewer systems.

Eligible applicants include cities, villages, counties, townships, and public water and sewer districts. Consideration for funding is not made on a per capita basis. No particular community has an entitlement to these funds.
