REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Office of Budget and Management respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to extend the date for local subdivisions to expend Coronavirus Relief Funds transferred to the subdivisions by the General Assembly and the date for local subdivisions to pay any unexpended balance to the state treasury.  
  Federal funds were made available from the Coronavirus Relief Fund to Ohio under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The CARES Act allows states to use the federal funding for necessary expenditures incurred by the state due to the public health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, for expenses incurred between March 1 and December 30, 2020, and that were not authorized as part of the state budget. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 extended the deadline to spend Coronavirus Relief Funds through December 31, 2021.

The U.S. Treasury has affirmed that states may transfer funds to local governments provided that the transferred funds are used by the local government for eligible expenditures under the CARES Act. H.B. 481, Controlling Board OBM0100130, and H.B. 614 of the 133rd General Assembly authorized transfers of federal Coronavirus Relief Funds to counties, cities, villages, and townships and set deadlines for the expenditure of the funds. Section 27 (G)(2) of H.B. 481, as most recently amended by S.B. 310, provides that upon the request of the Director of Budget and Management, the Controlling Board may extend the date for local governments to spend Coronavirus Relief Funds and the date by which local governments must return unexpended Coronavirus Relief Funds to the state treasury.

In accordance with Section 27 (G)(2) of H.B. 481, as most recently amended by S.B. 310, the Director of Budget and Management respectfully requests that the Controlling Board extend the deadline for local subdivisions to incur expenses to their Coronavirus Relief Funds to December 31, 2021. The Director of Budget and Management also respectfully requests that the Controlling Board extend the date by which local subdivisions must pay any unexpended balance of money in the subdivision's local Coronavirus Relief Fund to the state treasury to December 31, 2021.
