Ohio Restaurants and Bars Can Apply for New Assistance Program


The state of Ohio has created a $37.5 million fund to help bars and restaurants that have been hurt by the COVID-19 pandemic, called the Bar and Restaurant Assistance Fund.

The fund will provide $2,500 grants to eligible liquor permit holders in Ohio. The application process will start November 2, 2020, and businesses will be able to apply at businesshelp.ohio.gov.  Note that liquor permit holders are eligible to apply for both the Bar and Restaurant Assistance Fund and the Small Business Relief Grant.

Businesses applying for funding will be required to establish a registration ID with the state of Ohio. To create a new OH|ID, which provides users with secure access to State of Ohio services and programs, click here.
