COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19) -
Ohio Governor John R. Kasich announced on Tuesday that's he's activated a disaster relief fund to help Ohio families that were hard-hit by last Friday's tornadoes and severe storms.
Eligible low-income families with children, including pregnant women, in Clermont County earning up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level could receive up to $1,500.
For a family of four, that's an income of approximately $46,000.
Eligible elderly Ohioans and those with disabilities meeting the income thresholds could receive up to $750.
The funds can be used for immediate essential relief such as home repair, clothing and car repair—short-term needs to help low-income families get back on their feet until other forms of assistance become available.
Residents should contact the Clermont County Department of Job and Family Services to learn more:
