Wilmington News Journal

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services will receive $3 million to provide re-employment services to displaced workers at the Wilmington Airpark in Wilmington.

The funding — $2,932,835 — will be distributed through the U.S. Department of Labor’s National Emergency Grant (NEG) Program and will be directed to 729 former Airpark employees.

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio announced the funding Tuesday morning.

“It is critical that we redevelop the Clinton County Port Authority Airpark to attract new business and put southwest Ohioans back to work,” Brown said. “I am committed to working with federal, state, and local officials to establish a clear path toward recovery and renewed growth for Wilmington. Today’s funding is a significant step toward that goal.”
