School Hygiene Opportunity Program (SHOP)

Requests are due no later than November 17, 2023 at 3 pm.

The Ohio Valley Regional Development Commission (OVRDC) is a regional planning commission serving southern Ohio.  OVRDC recognized an unmet need for personal hygiene products for jr. high and high school students in our region.  Using money leftover from a Covid personal protection equipment grant, a program was designed to provide schools with these products for their students.  Currently, this is a one-time program, but funds are being sought to continue it into the future.
