The well-being of our citizens and ensuring clean air are critically
important to the quality of life for all Ohioans, and the businesses
in our state play a key role in achieving and maintaining those
standards. The Ohio Air Quality Development Authority offers
programs for businesses and government organizations to comply
with clean air regulations.
We work with organization of all sizes, from small independent dry cleaners to large corporations and utilities. In fact, the businesses we have assisted recently with clean air projects range from a new dry cleaning unit at Ridge Cleaners in Lorain County, and equipment to cut energy costs and reduce hazardous air emissions at the Jeff Wyler Automotive Family Chevrolet dealership in Canal Winchester to larger financing projects for Honda and JDM Services, a construction and demolition company (see articles that follow).
The Ohio Air Quality Development Authority (OAQDA) helps Ohio businesses, state, county and local governments and public institutions of higher learning comply with federal Clean Air Act standards through loans, grants and tax-exempt financing for equipment and the construction of air quality facilities.
Since its creation in 1970, the Authority has provided technical and financial help to hundreds of large and small Ohio businesses, awarding more than $8 billion to finance air quality projects.
We are fortunate to have members of the Authority Board including local public officials, business people and former legislators who bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and resources to the work we do.
The Ohio Air Quality Development Authority stands ready to provide financial and technical assistance to help Ohio businesses comply with state and federal regulations for clean, healthy air.
