2018 Capital Bill Community Project Application

*Applications Due January 3, 2018 *

The Clermont County Port Authority, working in collaboration with the county’s General Assembly Delegation, will be making recommendations to the Ohio General Assembly as to what “community projects” should be submitted for funding by any capital appropriations bill introduced in the General Assembly in 2018.

The Port Authority has assembled an evaluation team to evaluate submitted projects and, working with the Clermont County General Assembly Delegation, to make recommendations to the General Assembly Delegation as to what projects should be submitted for funding by any capital appropriations bill.

To be eligible for funding by the State Capital Bill, a project must be one that can be underwritten by state tax-exempt bonds.  Generally speaking, a project should entail the construction or improvement of a capital asset that advances the functions undertaken by the government.  Projects such as the construction or improvement of buildings are eligible, while the purchase of motor vehicles is not.  Likewise, capital projects supporting social services, workforce development or parks are eligible for funding as community projects, because it is expected that these projects will be separately funded in the next capital bill.

Projects will be scored according to the following criteria, for a possible maximum total of 120 points:
