The Ohio attorney general’s office is providing $3.8 million left from a $75 million demolition program to counties in Ohio for residential demolition.

Mahoning County will get $76,504 from the program. The county received $1,531,680 in 2012 from the program with most of it going to Youngstown.

Trumbull County will get $63,468 from the leftover money. It received $1,275,797 from the first round of funding.

Columbiana County will receive $27,823 this time and received $576,119 two years ago.

The original AG program required counties to match any money exceeding $500,000. Several counties didn’t apply for their full allocation, leaving $3.8 million in unrequested funds.

There is no match requirement for the $3.8 million. Each county, except Warren County, which didn’t want additional money, will receive at least $7,800 to demolish at least one more blighted structure.

Counties have until May 31 to use the first round of funding. A decision on unused funds will be made after that time, according to the attorney general’s office.
