OAQDA works on a daily basis with a large and diverse number of financial service institutions that assist with the agency’s financing programs.  Tax savings available from OAQDA for business-improvement projects of all sizes represent a value-added service for such institutions.  And the process typically involves weeks, not months, to complete.

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.
