Bar & Restaurant Assistance Fund – Applications Now Open
$2,500 Available for Bars and Restaurants
HCDC would like to share important information regarding funding that is still available for bars and restaurants with an active on-premises liquor permit.
Bars, restaurants, breweries, and private clubs are eligible to receive $2,500 from the Ohio’s Bar and Restaurant Fund. There are approximately 30 permit types that qualify. In total, $38.7 million in federal CARES Act has been set aside to support businesses with an active on-premises permit as of Oct. 23, 2020.
Permit holders are encouraged to apply by Dec. 18, 2020, at BusinessHelp.Ohio.Gov. Applicants will need to provide their liquor permit number, location address, and Federal EIN or SSN. An application must be submitted for each unique physical location. Once the application is processed, the Ohio Department of Administrative Services will mail the check to the address provided on the application.
