Mosquito Control Grant Program Awards Online Media Kit

The purpose of the Mosquito Control Grant program is to make funding available to health departments and related public entities to use for surveillance and application of mosquito control measures in support of the Ohio Department of Health’s (ODH) efforts to mitigate the potential for an outbreak of mosquito-borne viruses such as Zika, West Nile and La Cross Encephalitis.

Ohio EPA and ODH received spending authority and awarded the first round of grants in June 2016 (totaling $253,252) to 18 health departments and municipalities. A second round of grants (totaling $691,340) to 31 health departments and municipalities was announced in September 2016. In order to stretch the grant dollars to the maximum benefit of the public, collaborative efforts between health departments and other public entities are encouraged.
