Economic development info for Tiffin and Seneca County, Ohio
Issue 12 - June 2015
More than 200 programs
I continue to find it amazing that there are more than 200 different business incentive and assistance programs available in Seneca County. More than 20 tax credits and exemptions. More than 40 grant. More than 60 financing and funding programs. Almost 80 services.  And you can check them out at .

But listing them is only the beginning. This summer we're kicking up our business outreach program, which we call INSIGHT, into high gear as we work to reach out to 1,000 businesses in Seneca County. The warm weather has us itching to connect businesses with these resources. We also  just launched our new monthly newsletter specifically for programs - Incentive INSIGHT. Check out our first issue .

Hope to talk to you soon,
