Large Business Overview

In this section you will find general information about our programs and how those programs can help our large business customers. You will also find a list of affected businesses and processes which could benefit from our program, and other industry specific resources. If you are considering energy efficiency improvements, process changes, or the purchase of traditional pollution control equipment to reduce or eliminate air emissions, then you may be eligible for assistance through OAQDA. Ethanol and other biofuel production facilities and clean coal technologies are also eligible for the incentives available to your business.

Application for Financing

Apply for OAQDA Financing


The Ohio Air Quality Development Authority (OAQDA) pursues its mission to conserve air as a natural resource of the State by helping to finance air quality facilities for small and large businesses, utilities, governments, and universities. In an effort to ensure that the OAQDA Members has an opportunity to review all relevant information for whole-building/development projects, meaning projects applying for OAQDA support to the rehabilitation of an entire building or construction of a new building, or facility, OAQDA will be formulating criteria, guidelines, and protocols for these types of projects. While OAQDA is conducting its due diligence to develop these criteria, guidelines, and protocols, it will not be accepting new or making decisions on applications for whole-building/development project support. OAQDA will continue to accept applications for projects that are not whole-building/development projects (i.e., that only apply to specific components or systems, such as HVAC, rather than the entire building) during this time. OAQDA anticipates that its project criteria may be complete in mid-year 2019.
