Supporting Local Businesses

The Toledo USEPA Area Wide Planning Project supports local entrepreneurship as a means of rebuilding the economy within the project area. To that end, we have worked with a number of local businesses and organizations, and we encourage others to support the talents and services of local businesses in the project area and within Toledo.
