PAINESVILLE, Ohio, November 16, 2023– Recently, Lake County was awarded $447,954 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.
“We are ecstatic about this opportunity to award funds to the community that will enable older adults to remain in their homes and support those disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Commission President John R. Hamercheck. Please click here to read the entire press release.
