The economic development within ten counties relies heavily upon The Ohio Mid-Eastern Governments Association. Also known as OMEGA, provides a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy report which county commissioners were updated on earlier today.
It was a review on the activities that OMEGA covers as the agency that is in charge of distributing funds to the counties. Information on population of Muskingum County as well as surrounding counties was provided as well. The OMEGA comprehensive economic development strategy will fulfill the EDA’s requirements for renewal of the region’s economic development district certification and also qualify member counties for potential funding assistance. Right now OMEGA has a revolving loan fund for small businesses and has money available if individuals are interested in starting or expanding a small business. For more information on how OMEGA can help you call 1-800-726-6342, or 439-4471.
