The City of Zanesville, through House Bill 481 was provided funding to deal with urgent needs identified by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Through conversations within our community, several projects were identified that funds can be put toward to aid with problems caused by the pandemic.
FOOD: Nonprofits are working overtime to get food to our most vulnerable community members, including seniors, children and low-income individuals and families. The Fund will ensure that those hit hardest by the effects of the virus, including those who suffer job loss, can count on support to feed themselves and their families. If you or someone you know are in need – contact East Side Community Ministry or Christ Table .
STUDENT INTERNET ACCESS CENTERS: The City of Zanesville has partnered with community organizations to provide publicly accessible internet cafes and equipment for student’s use in order to aid the educational needs of our City due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The City has purchased the needed equipment to build these secure publicly accessible wireless internet cafes. These cafes are spread across the city with 9 locations. Additionally the City is working with Muskingum University to provide tutors at each location to assist with distance learning.
