CINCINNATI — A pair of five-year levies will continue to help fund Hamilton County programs for people with developmental disabilities, victims of sex trafficking and families dealing with substance abuse.

Issues 20 and 21 each passed handily with more than 70% of the vote.

Issue 20, the Family Services and Treatment levy, funds programs such as Talbert House, Prevention First and Cincinnati Union Bethel’s Off the Streets programming.

Issue 21 funds developmental disabilities programming throughout the county, including programs that provide early intervention for children with disabilities, help adults with disabilities form social relationships and find work, and encourage acceptance in the Hamilton County community as a whole.
