Groundwork Ohio in Action

Ohio operates on a two-year budget cycle with its fiscal year running from July 1 through June 30 of the following year. While the budget process occurs only six months out of every 24 months, Groundwork makes and takes every opportunity to show legislators how investments in quality early education and health benefit all Ohioans.
