The Ohio Recovery Housing (ORH) Repairs Fund Application is open for eligible organizations and/or operators of recovery housing facilities throughout the state of Ohio!

Funded by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OHMHAS) and the Ohio Department of Development (ODD), this opportunity is open for non-ORH certified recovery housing operators seeking to gain certification through ORH and help expand housing opportunities throughout the state of Ohio. Eligible applicants include operators:

Eligible applicants may apply for up to $10,000.00 per property (refunded by ORH subsequent to repairs), and funds must be used for physical improvements identified during the ORH certification and inspection processes. The application as well as other certification criteria can be found on the ORH website.
