Explore Our Strategic Initiatives
JobsOhio’s mission is to drive job creation and new capital investment in Ohio. A suite of programs and services has been designed to attract business, retain jobs, and help make the choice to expand or relocate here an easy one.
JobsOhio and its network partners offer several incentives like grants, loans, and services for companies interested in starting businesses, relocating, or expanding operations throughout the state. We work with businesses and local communities to design personalized incentive packages for success.
JobsOhio offers multiple initiatives related to sites and buildings, from revitalization to development-ready and job-ready sites, all with the shared goal of encouraging job creation and capital investment to companies looking to establish or expand operations within our state.
Our SiteOhio program goes beyond the common certified sites process, putting properties within industrial zoning through a more stringent and comprehensive review and analysis than any other state certification process. Available sites are construction ready on day one. Site authentication guarantees all utilities are on the property, have adequate capacity, have due diligence studies completed, and that all state and federal entities have provided concurrence with the studies.
JobsOhio seeks to establish Ohio on the leading edge of technology and attract the best and brightest companies and talent to drive Ohio’s future. Our innovation initiatives boost Ohio’s competitiveness and leverage the state’s lifestyle desirability to make Ohio the Midwest’s magnet for entrepreneurs, inventors, and industries.
JobsOhio’s robust talent and workforce strategy combine proactive talent attraction, talent growth and retention, company talent support, and upskilling/reskilling initiatives to set Ohio businesses up for long-term growth.
Ensuring all Ohioans have equitable access to essential resources is instrumental to the growth and prosperity of the state. JobsOhio invests in underrepresented populations and geographies by offering inclusive grants and programs to help level the playing field and promote economic development, and connect people to career-building resources.
