Local Government Efficiency Program

Public sector employees who are interested in innovating, providing better service and saving money may qualify for free training and grants designed to help them do just that. The Local Government Efficiency Program, sponsored by the Ohio Development Services Agency, includes:

  • LeanOhio Boot Camp: free, one-week lean training session created specifically for public employees
  • Grant program: those who complete the boot camp are eligible to apply for a grant of up to $100,000 for a lean project at their workplace

Northwest State is the only certified training provider in northwest Ohio for LeanOhio Boot Camp. Sessions will be offered in both Archbold and Toledo through Custom Training Solutions, the workforce development division of NSCC. Other class locations are available upon request.
