How To Apply For Business COVID Grants – WHIO TV 7 and WHIO Radio

When the COVID crisis hit last year and Gov. Mike DeWine shut down the state’s economy, DeWine and state lawmakers were determined to provide businesses that were hurt financially to get some help on their road to recovery. It began with a $150 million grant program signed into law in March, 2021. Now the dollar amount has risen to $310 million thanks to a boost from the new state budget.

The money headed to businesses will come in the form of grants. “Those grants will be based on established loss of revenue and the number of employees,” DeWine said as he signed SB 108 and SB 109, two companion bills providing the first round of funding for businesses.

Applications for the grants, along with terms and requirements are available at  BusinessHelp.Ohio.Gov.
