COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Commissioners applied to the Ohio Development Services Agency for competitive set-aside grant funds to benefit the Village of Warsaw. The state received 75 funding proposals for the competitive set-aside funds and funded 34 proposals.

Coshocton County was notified by the state that its application for $300,000 in grant funds to assist the Village of Warsaw with a Neighborhood Revitalization Program has been approved. The grant will make improvements to Warsaw’s park, swimming pool and village green space; replace fire hydrants; make improvements to the Village’s sanitary sewer system; replace broken sidewalks; and, pave several village streets.

Coshocton County has received more than $3,678,000 in Federal CDBG and CHIP funds since joining forces in 2009 with CDC of Ohio (Community Development Consultants) located in Columbus, to write and administer the grant funds. This partnership, coupled with increased community involvement, has been the catalyst for success in securing these much need grant funds for the community.
