Lake County Receives Healthy Aging Grant

PAINESVILLE, Ohio, October 26, 2023– Lake County, Ohio will be awarded $447,953.61 in Healthy Aging Grant funds from the Ohio Department of Aging (ODA).

Established through House Bill 33 of the 135th General Assembly, Healthy Aging Grant funds will be used by ODA to provide grants to all Ohio counties to address social determinants of health and to foster improved quality of life for older Ohioans so they may remain in their homes and connected to their communities, preserve their personal assets, and promote a healthy, independent, active lifestyle. Healthy Aging Grants resolve to address the longstanding health and economic disparities, which amplified the impact of the pandemic in many of Ohio’s counties.

“These grant funds will enable us to continue to recover from the recent COVID-19 pandemic by supporting older adults disproportionately impacted. Many older adults continue to struggle with health and economic consequences, these funds will help address that,” said Commission President John R. Hamercheck. Please click here to read the entire press release.
