Dayton first responder entities slated for $15M+ funding (See what for)
Announcement for the fifth round of the Ohio First Responder Recruitment, Retention and Resilience Program are in and Dayton is sectioned for a large chunk of funds.
A statewide program aimed at easing rising needs for local first responders is seeing another round of funding. Funding to the Dayton region takes up over half of the total allocation. The Dayton region is slated to receive 54.1% of the round's funding. To date, DeWine has awarded $49 million to 219 Ohio agencies as part of this program, which aims to address burnout caused by understaffing as well as overall job stress. 'These grants provide agency-specific support to help first responders remain on the job so that they can continue to keep Ohioans safe.'
