Here’s a look at the incredible impact of the Food Stamp Program, Medicaid, Medicare, Earned Income Tax Credit, Social Security, and Unemployment Compensation across the state and in Ohio’s 20 most populous counties.
Advocates for Ohio’s Future recommends using these county fact sheets to educate lawmakers — particularly Members of Congress — about the importance of these programs as Congress and the Super Committee debate deep cuts to them.
The fact sheets can also be used with state legislators and the media as well as local business, faith, and community leaders.
