$74 Million allocated to Protection of Abused and Neglected Kids in Ohio

Last week, Gov. Mike DeWine announced an unprecedented 95 percent increase to the state’s investment in protecting abused and neglected children. That $74 million announcement, along with related spending proposals, makes good on a campaign promise that Ohio should not be last in the nation when it comes to the state’s responsibility for funding such a critical program. Seneca County DJFS Director Kathy Oliver was pleased with the announcement.

“These programs will alleviate the pressure on our agency’s budget, which has struggled to pay rising costs. More importantly, he is saving children and families by improving their chance for a better future,” she said.
