Ohio’s communities thrive when people feel safe, have good jobs and can afford the basics. Unfortunately, a job doesn’t always mean a living and Ohioans across the state aren’t making enough to make ends meet.
AOF’s updated Ohio Poverty Snapshot resource card highlights that despite signs of an economic recovery, too many Ohioans are living in poverty. One side of the card shows the 2019 Federal Poverty Guidelines that are used to determine who is and who is not eligible for benefits through public support programs and the other highlights that most common Ohio jobs leave working Ohioans in need of extra support.
