Reforms would help poor Ohio residents

Community Action information

COLUMBUS — Ohio Governor John Kasich has announced bold reforms to streamline the state’s human services programs and help Ohioans break the cycle of poverty.

“The reforms Governor Kasich announced today will be good for the people of Ohio,” said Philip E. Cole, executive director of the Ohio Association of Community Action Agencies. “Focusing on the needs of the people who live in poverty is what must be done.”

Governor Kasich announced plans to provide stronger services and work supports for teens and young adults to increase eligibility for subsidized child care and to hold government agencies accountable to help more people out of poverty.

“The efforts of Governor Kasich and the Office of Human Services Innovation are important to the future of Ohio,” said Cole. “Economic turnaround works best when it includes all people and that is clearly the plan.”
