**This is a followup to the Grants Available for Eligible Ohio Small Businesses Impacted by COVID web post from 10/29/20**

When working with businesses on this Ohio Grant we became aware of the following item that applicants must attest to being true:

  • I certify that the business identified in this application has suffered losses as a result of COVID-19 and that the total amount of COVID-related costs incurred exceeds the total amount of support received from state, local and federal relief programs funded by the CARES Act. Additionally, I verify that any grant funds received from the State of Ohio will not be used to pay for expenditures that have already been reimbursed through any other state, local and federal relief programs funded by the CARES Act.

If you received Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funds and apply for this Ohio grant you must be able to demonstrate that the lost revenue and/or additional costs exceeded the PPP funds already received.  There must be excess economic hurt done to your business above and beyond the PPP funds received and this grant is designed to help that excess.  The application will ask for PPP funds received by the applicant.
