2014 Assistance Numbers


In 2014, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services disbursed about $2.6 billion in food assistance, $280 million in cash assistance and, $570 million in child care subsidies. Individuals who mislead caseworkers or lie on an application for benefits account for a very small percentage of the funding disbursed. Those found to be committing fraud are removed from the program, must repay any improperly obtained benefits, and may face criminal charges and jail time.
