The Ohio Huntington Job Growth Partnership is a groundbreaking 3-year, $1 billion public-private lending partnership to attract, retain and grow businesses and jobs within the state.

The statewide program will strengthen the link between Ohio businesses and its banking community by throwing a $1 billion lifeline in new credit to small - to medium - sized businesses struggling in the face of the sudden contraction in credit availability and economic activity that began in 2008.

The partnership leverages existing State of Ohio and federal Small Business Administration loan programs to maximize availability of funds for companies located in or moving to Ohio. Visit the Ohio Huntington website for more information.
