The Appalachian Partnership for Economic Growth (APEG) is the first organization to collaborate with Ohio’s 32 Appalachian-designated counties with an economic development goal.

The Appalachian Partnership for Economic Growth

APEG was founded in 2011 and continues to grow its services as new opportunities are identified.  The non-profit organization partners in several initiatives designed to create jobs and advance the region’s economy.

APEG, one of six JobsOhio network partners, acts the single point of entry for economic development activities in 25 counties.   The APEG-JobsOhio team has a dual role working with site selectors, counties and communities to attract new companies and with the region’s existing companies to grow their operations.   Learn more about APEG-JobsOhio programs OR view map of counties served.

Supporting the forest and wood products industry in Ohio’s 32 Appalachian-designated counties is the focus of the Small Business Administration’s Regional Innovation Cluster program.  The APEG Wood Products team works statewide to support economic development in this diverse, underserved industry.  Learn more about APEG-SBA programs OR view map of counties served.
