In September of 2020, Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW) announced it had been awarded $725,000 in state funding as part of Governor DeWine’s H2Ohio Initiative to replace lead service lines in licensed childcare facilities within the utility’s service area. Any ODJFS licensed childcare center with a lead service line in GCWW’s service area is eligible to have a lead line removed at no cost to them. Grant funding is available to providers who rent or own the facility. GCWW encourages licensed childcare providers to call 513.651.5323, visit Lead.myGCWW.org or email for more information and application details. More information available here.
