Small businesses have until March 31, 2023 to apply for a grant from the city to receive 1-3 baby station changing stations.

“Council is raising awareness for the need of changing stations in men’s rooms and gender-neutral bathrooms at “family friendly” locations throughout Columbus while advocating for the benefits for businesses, families and all.”

Councilmember Rob Dorans is leading the effort and as a new dad has experienced the need firsthand. The goal is to install 150 changing stations throughout the city.

Columbus businesses and organizations are now eligible to apply for 1-3 changing stations between now and March 31, 2023 in order to receive them by June 18, 2023 (Father’s Day).
