The State Capital Improvement Program and the Local Transportation Improvement Program were created to assist in financing local public infrastructure improvements. Local subdivisions that require financial assistance in moving projects forward can pursue this funding through the 18th Public Works District. Consideration for funding is not made on a per capita basis. No particular community has an entitlement to these funds.

All interested parties are encouraged to attend the training session. RSVP by Friday, June 2, 2017 to Michelle Hyer at mhyer@buckeyehills.org or by phone at (740) 376-1025. For more information on the SCIP program, contact Michelle Hyer at (740) 376-1025.
