Clean Ohio Funds will be used to acquire open space for preservation, either by purchase or permanent conservation easement. For each grant, a minimum 25 percent local match was required.

Since the program was approved by Ohio voters in 2000, more than $9 million has been returned to Lucas County for the preservation of open space. Projects have preserved wetlands, enlarged park areas, and protected rare habitat in the Oak Openings Region. See details of the application and evaluation process on the TMACOG website here.
