Here’s how local governments spent millions in CARES Act funds; Search by community

Local governments received hundreds of millions of dollars from the federal CARES Act to spend responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021. Most Ohio governments that received the funds had to report to the state by mid-February 2022 how that money was spent.

The Dayton Daily News used Ohio public records law to obtain these reports and made them searchable below so readers can see how taxpayer money was spent in their communities.
