Billions in COVID Aid

Billions in COVID aid header

Billions of federal dollars and hundreds of local decisions are transforming our communities and fueling recovery from the COVID downturn. We are asking local governments to show how they’re spending taxpayer money for pandemic relief. We are examining data and hitting the street to uncover if there's any waste, fraud, abuse or mismanagement. And we are asking readers to follow the money with us as we use Ohio public records law and federal sources to put this information at your fingertips. Follow the coverage below of our new project: Dayton Daily News Investigates Billions in COVID aid: Where it’s going
