Lt. Gov. Jon Husted said the funds would “inject a lifeline to people during a difficult time.”
Last week the governor announced more than $419.5 million in CARES Act funding to help small businesses, restaurants, bars, hospitals, higher education, arts, nonprofits and low-income Ohioans impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
“We know that Ohioans are hurting, and the needs are great. We must do what we can to help them through this crisis,” DeWine said. “Providing financial support to small businesses, the arts, and nonprofits will help them keep the doors open and Ohioans employed.”
