Columbus Region State Capital Budget Process

The State of Ohio’s capital budget allocates state funding for infrastructure and community projects throughout Ohio. The Columbus Partnership, in conjunction with the Columbus Chamber of Commerce and other community leaders, is beginning a review process of capital projects to be recommended to the State Legislature for consideration. Applications for the review process can be found in the link below and submitted to by Friday, November 1.

The questionnaire is a downloadable PDF document that can typed into directly. A complete application will include the finished questionnaire as well as several supplemental items. The supplemental documents required are: a line-item budget, a project timeline and list of key milestones, outline of other/outside funding committed to supporting the project, and a list of project supporters and/or partners.

Upon receiving all submissions, our team will work to identify key project proposals for prioritizing and recommending to the state legislature at the end of the Fall. If you have any questions during this process, please email Gerard Basalla at
