Ohio Department of Development

The availability of a reliable, skilled workforce is one of the most important factors for businesses planning to expand or relocate. That is why Ohio is committed to continuously developing its workforce and creating jobs, ensuring that employers have a competitive advantage in the 21st century global marketplace.

Under the umbrella of the Ohio Workforce Guarantee, the Ohio Department of Development’s Office of Strategic Business Investments provides a variety of customized training grant programs aimed at creating and retaining jobs by improving worker’s skills and abilities. The Office’s training grant programs are coordinated by six Regional Workforce Development Directors, who assess the unique training needs of companies and guide employers through all phases of the application and approval process, at no cost to businesses.
