Public WorksWise Training
The Commission has been hard at work for the two years developing our Salesforce based internal cloud platform, Public WorksWise. WorksWise will allow our customers to apply online for OPWC grant and loan funds, process disbursement requests to vendors, submit relevant project documentation and schedule information, and navigate loan repayments all in one place!
We have been testing the system and the OPWC staff will be going live internally with the platform in the month of May. Our external users will begin using the platform after the Round 35 project agreements are released electronically on July 1st. From July 1st on, we will help facilitate statewide use of WorksWise to manage and maintain your OPWC infrastructure and Clean Ohio project.

Requesting Access to WorksWise
OPWC allows each community/applicant one license to access WorksWise in order to apply for funding and request disbursements once funded. In order to onboard new and existing applicants, we require that the applicant designate an appointee and request access via the link below.
Important Items to Note: if you want access for another community other than the one with which you are employed (this may be true for County Engineers Offices or consulting firms), a Letter of Authorization will be required to be uploaded when you make the request to be set up for that community. Below is a link to the template that must be put on the subdivision's letter head, signed, and scanned in as a PDF.
Letter of Authorization for WorksWise access to applicant's account
Liaisons: Please do not request a username through this form, you are automatically setup to receive usernames. However, if you are applying on behalf of a community, you will need to request access to do so with the Letter of Authorization above.
Cities/Counties: For larger communities that may need more than one login, there is a space on the form to explain why additional logins are necessary. We will review them on a case by case basis. Every community is afforded at least one login to the WorksWise Portal.
For WorksWise questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and copy your Program Representative on the email. Someone will respond back to you as quickly as possible.
Please fill out the form below for each login requested. If you are representing multiple communities, please fill register for each community you plan to work with along with the Letter of Authorization. Please do NOT list more than one subdivision on the signup form or your entry will be deleted and we will ask that you resubmit your request(s).
