Businesses that are participants in EDGE become eligible to be counted towards EDGE participation goals on certain state contracts.

Does this certification expire? The certification is valid for two years. After that an EDGE business must demonstrate (and such demonstration must be made before expiry) that they are still valid to pass certification criteria.

Is any loan or bonding assistance provided through this program? Yes, EDGE businesses certified by DAS thereby become eligible for certain programs, such as (as listed by DAS) the Capital Access Program Ohio, the Mini-Loan Guarantee Program, the Collateral Enhancement Program, and the Targeted investment Program.
