Moving Ohio Forward is a statewide program launched by Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine in spring 2012. Designed to revitalize neighborhoods littered with blighted properties, DeWine introduced the program soon after settling a lawsuit with five of the nation’s leading mortgage servicers. The lawsuit accused Ally, Bank of America, Citi, JP Morgan Chase, and Wells Fargo of foreclosure abuses, fraud, and unfair and deceptive mortgage practices.

The settlement resulted in $330 million in relief through loan modification, principle reduction, interest rate refinancing programs, and other benefits to which Ohioans were privy. Plus another $93 million that DeWine received to help with foreclosure prevention, assistance to individuals who have experienced foreclosure, and revitalizing neighborhoods by removing blighted properties. Of that $93 million, DeWine allocated $75 million to Moving Ohio Forward and invited leaders of all 88 Ohio counties to apply for demolition grants.

Officials across the state quickly jumped at the chance to revive their areas. Each sought certified, insured, and bonded demolition contractors without which no progress could be made. These criterions are, after all, among the program guidelines set forth by the Attorney General’s office along with ethics and debatement. And the demolition experts at DeSantis Enterprises met the mark and got to work!
