About the workshop:

How does Ohio budget and tax policy impact social services, safety nets, and our people and communities? During this 1 hour webinar we will discuss: 1. Ohio's budget priorities and procedures prior to COVID-19 2. How the pandemic has changed public finance in Ohio and throughout the country and 3. How to explain these issues in our communities to better assist clients and community members to be leaders in planning for the future.
