Gov. Kasich’s Budget Prioritizes Jobs, Training

On Monday, Gov. Kasich presented his proposed biennial budget for state fiscal years 2018 and 2019, “Building for Ohio’s Next Generation.”  Ohio Department of Job and Family Services Director Dungey stated that, once again, the governor’s budget prioritizes jobs and helping people get the education, training and other services they need to support their families and build their careers. It provides the necessary funding for all of our core programs, as well as Bridges, the new program that will allow us to provide additional supportive services for young people who’ve aged out of foster care.

The governor’s budget also provides the funding we need to continue providing the same high quality service to our internal and external customers. As most of you know, this is just the beginning of the budget process. Members of the House and Senate still must review the governor’s proposals and then approve a final version by June 30. We’ll share more details with you when we have them. In the meantime, anyone interested in reading “Building for Ohio’s Next Generation” can find it at
