COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio is giving out more than $3 million to help local communities transport elderly and disabled Ohioans.
The Ohio Department of Transportation says the money will be used to buy new vehicles and equipment.
State officials say the new equipment will help provide access to medical appointments, employment, grocery shopping, banking and other services.
More than 63 nonprofit agencies and organizations across 36 different counties in Ohio are receiving the funds.
The finance director for Quadco Rehabilitation Center in Williams County says the money is essential to that program. Terry Fruth says the program serves 240 individuals across four different counties in northwest Ohio.
He says the money will allow the center to buy four new vehicles that are needed to help those served by the center.
