Ohio Governor Mike DeWine reminded Ohio business owners that grants are available through the Ohio Department of Development to help small and medium-sized businesses recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
A total of $310 million is being offered across four grant programs to help new businesses that opened in 2020, food and beverage establishments, entertainment venues, and lodging venues.
To ensure the grants are spread throughout the state, each program has a set-aside amount of funding for each of Ohio’s 88 counties.
If businesses in a county do not deplete the county’s allocation by July 31, the remaining funds will become available to businesses statewide.
Applications opened June 29 and will remain open until funds are exhausted.
