With the implementation of SB105, priority legislation for the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce, the process to become certified has become easier.
However, the MBE certification does more than just assist with opportunities for state contracts. As a certified MBE business in Ohio, you are listed in a database so that other companies looking to do business with companies like yours can easily find out.
Certified MBEs also have access to assistance programs for finance and bonding such as:
- Minority Business Bonding Program
- Ohio Capital Access Program
- Collateral Enhancement Program
- Ohio Micro-Loan Program
If you have questions about the process or need assistance with your application, the team at the Minority Business Assistance Center at the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce is here to help. You can reach them by calling 419-243-8191.
