WVXU has covered the pandemic's impact on the Tri-State from the very beginning, when on March 3, 2020, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine barred spectators from attending the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus over concerns about the virus, even though Ohio had yet to confirm a single case of COVID-19.

New Fund Has Millions To Help Those Still Struggling Due To The Pandemic


COVID-related restrictions are easing and people are venturing out again. But even as our masks come off, many in Greater Cincinnati are still struggling with the economic fallout of the global pandemic that has dominated the last year.

Now, an effort by the Community Action Agency of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, in partnership with the city of Cincinnati, looks to leverage $6 million in federal funds to help those struggling to pay rent, mortgages, utilities and other expenses due to the pandemic.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the Home Relief Program are Community Action Agency of Cincinnati and Hamilton CountyPresident and CEO Mark Lawson and CAA client Shawn Trammell.
