At Governor Mike DeWine’s almost daily 2:00 p.m. press conference yesterday, Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted announced the creation of the Office of Small Business Relief (OSBR).
The OSBR is focused on identifying and providing support to the state’s nearly 950,000 small businesses to help during the current public health crisis and to position them for a span rebound. This initiative serves as another attempt at a “one-stop shop” for small businesses seeking resources that may be available during these unprecedented times.
There is easy to digest information on resources for economic support and the different options available. There is also a FAQ section that answers many of the different questions small businesses have related to the SBA and ways to find more information in the stimulus package, unemployment compensation and more.
This new office is housed in the Ohio Development Services Agency (DSA) which is under the direction of former Findlay Mayor, Lydia Mihalik.

Additionally, they include a section at the bottom where you can reach out directly if you are having trouble or if you have further questions.
