Spotlight: JobsOhio Inclusion Grant

The JobsOhio Inclusion Grant funds eligible projects happening in designated distressed communities in Ohio and/or led by businesses owned by underrepresented populations (at least 51% minority-owned, woman-owned, veteran-owned or owned by an individual with a disability). Grant decisions are based on a number of factors, including but not limited to company location, company ownership, jobs created and/or retained, and project fixed-asset investment. All or most qualified projects require a company to commit to new job and payroll growth. Small to medium-sized companies (annual revenues up to $25million) engaged in JobsOhio’s targeted industries and business functions may apply, provided they meet qualifying criteria.
