IMPORTANT PROGRAM UPDATE
The federal funds used to operate this project are scheduled to expire later this year. As a result, all ACE funds must be used for allowable activities no later than July 1, 2024. (Dates of service must occur before July 1, 2024.)*
All claims requesting payment or reimbursement must be submitted to Merit for processing no later than July 15, 2024. Any funds that are not expended by July 1, 2024 will no longer be available. Claims submitted after July 15, 2024 will not be approved.
*Clarification for service dates/close down for camps: Claims for day camps that have been paid for by parents may be reimbursed if the service date occurs through September 1, 2024. The claim is only reimbursable for day camps during this time period if the parent has paid up front and prior to July 1, 2024.
Each Service Provider conducts their business differently and may collect payment for their goods/services in one of two ways:
1. Parent/Guardian pays for goods/services at time of service. This type of purchase can be reimbursed with OH ACE account funds directly to the parent/guardian via claim submission with an attached receipt in the OH ACE app as long as the parent/guardian has connected their bank account to the app.
2. Service Provider issues an invoice to the parent/guardian for goods/services. This invoice can be paid directly to the Service Provider using OH ACE account funds by submitting a claim with the attached invoice in the OH ACE app, as long as the Service Provider has set up their account to receive those funds.
Please check with each Service Provider ahead of a purchasing decision to ensure you are aware of their policy regarding payment at time of service or invoicing.

Construction began on the Ohio State Reformatory in 1886 when the Ohio Board of State Charities decided that an intermediate penitentiary was required to rehabilitate inmates that was more secure than the Boys Industrial School, but for lower tier offenders than the Ohio Penitentiary. The Ohio State Reformatory now houses the Ohio Corrections Museum, the Shawshank Museum, and the North Central Ohio Industrial Museum. Students can view the inner workings of a historical Reformatory, the history of corrections in the state of Ohio, the history of Hollywood activities that took place here, and the industry of manufacturing and industry in Ohio.
