The Office will coordinate state efforts to identify and provide direct support for Ohio’s nearly 950,000 small businesses.

Resources for small businesses are available online at coronavirus.ohio.gov/businesshelp. New services and support identified by the Office of Small Business Relief will be added to the site.

OCILB has indicated that, during the COVID-19 crisis, they will issue your licenses as they come due, provided that you have paid your renewal fee on time. The state will allow a grace period of approximately 60 days for you to obtain your necessary CEU credits.  This is a temporary action and the acceptance of alternate methods of training (online) will be allowed during this 60 day grace period. As we move through the 60 day grace period the State of Ohio will be evaluating the situation and if any further action needs implemented regarding the grace period they will advise.
