Small businesses in Clermont County can apply for Coronavirus Relief Act (CARES Act) grants of $2,500 (for 1-10 employees) or $5,000 (for 11-50 employees) starting 4:30 p.m. Aug. 31. The funds are available on a first-come, first-serve basis to businesses active since at least January 2019, who demonstrate the impact of the pandemic on their operations.
To apply, visit this link for an online application, or for a form to download, print and fax to 513-732-7366, or personally deliver to the Clermont County Department of Community & Economic Development, 3rd Floor, 101 E. Main St., Batavia, OH 45103.
“Based on interest already expressed, we believe this will be a popular program,” said Michael McNamara, the department’s director.
The Board of County Commissioners approved the program at their Aug. 19 meeting. Clermont County has about $200,000 available to distribute. The Economic Development Department hopes this is the first round of funding with future funding used in additional rounds.
“We hope these funds will help small businesses during these extremely challenging times,” said David Painter, president of the Board of County Commissioners. “Small businesses are vital to our economy, providing much-needed services and employment to many.”
