Small Business Relief Grant

This is an updated version of a previous post, as there is ‘new’ relief as of Monday, November 2, 2020.

Due to Covid-19, there is a need for help with businesses staying afloat. And with that, “The Small Business Relief Grant provides $125 million for grants to small businesses with no more than 25 employees. The grant funding will help businesses pay for a variety of expenses, including mortgage or rent payments; utility payments; salaries, wages, or compensation for employees and contractors; business supplies or equipment; and other costs. Grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.” (https://www.development.ohio.gov/files/media/pressrelease/2020-1029-CARES-Act-Release.pdf)

And if a business has issues with paying rent, and utlities, the following has also stated, “The Development Services Agency also will allocate $50 million to 47 Community Action Agencies to provide rent, mortgage, and water and/or sewer assistance to Ohioans in need. The Home Relief Grant will help eligible Ohioans pay outstanding rent, mortgage, and water and/or sewer utilities to avoid shutoff, foreclosure, or eviction.” (https://www.development.ohio.gov/files/media/pressrelease/2020-1029-CARES-Act-Release.pdf)
