COLUMBUS—State Senator Dave Burke (R-Marysville) today announced that the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has awarded $700,000 aimed at supporting efforts to expand Ohio’s small business markets overseas.

"We remain focused on improving Ohio's small business climate so entrepreneurs can succeed and our economy can grow," said Senator Burke. "This grant provides an incredible opportunity for Ohio Small Businesses to expand in international markets without additional cost."

Under the SBA's State Trade Expansion Program, 306 Ohio businesses have received funding to offset costs and promote their product lines and services in international markets. With this new grant, more small businesses will be eligible to apply for the assistance through the Ohio Development Services Agency’s Export Assistance Office.

Businesses are eligible for assistance with marketing expenses of up to $12,500, under the program. The announced program will run through September 29, 2018.
