Ohio Works To Save Babies

The Ohio Department of Health is investing into a Healthy Lucas County Project to combat infant mortality.
This money will be used to literally go door to door in Toledo's greatest at risk neighborhoods to recruit 150 pregnant women who live in seven census tracts in the 43604, 43608, 43609, 43611 and 43620 zip codes.

These women will be eligible for rent assistance for up to 12 months, up to $500 for transportation, car care and utilities. The grant funding is part of a $40 million investment statewide to address the infant mortality rate.
