Update from Ohio Development Services Agency

As the state fiscal year comes to a close, I want to thank you, our community development partners, for the work you have done this year to help strengthen Ohio’s communities. An essential part of our mission at the Development Services Agency is providing quality customer service. Part of our work to ensure you know what resources are available through our agency included creating the Program Finder on our website. This is a tool on the front page to look up our programs. When you find a program, based on your needs, it suggests other state incentives that are available. Direct contact information for a staff member is in the same convenient location, in case you have additional questions.

It’s hard to believe, but school is back in session and football season is here.  As the Kasich administration winds down, we’re running through to the end zone. On May 15th, Governor Kasich signed an Executive Order establishing the Office of Opportunities for New Americans within our agency. The purpose of the office is to identify ways to encourage hard-working, highly skilled men and women to come to Ohio to help our businesses and communities grow. We want to support them with resources to thrive in our communities.
