Deadline Extended COVID-19 Small Business Response & Recovery Fund

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until September 11, 2020

Fund Program Overview & Requirements

With the updates made to the Fund in Round 2, businesses citywide are now eligible for Recovery Grants and Pivot Loans if they otherwise meet the qualifications (these are no longer restricted to companies located in Low and Moderate Income areas of the City).

In Round 2, Businesses outside of the City but within the balance of Franklin County are now eligible for Recovery Grants regardless of business owner income (no longer restricted to Low and Moderate Income business owners). Having received PPP/EIDL funding is no longer a disqualifier for Franklin County businesses outside of the City of Columbus municipal boundaries.

How To Apply

Applications are open. The application inquiry deadline has been extended to Friday, September 11, 2020.

This is will be the final extension, and thus represents the final closing date for the Fund under its current configuration. Anyone who completes an inquiry by 9/11 will have ample time to collaborate and submit a full application.

Business owners will be matched with the regional Entrepreneur Support Organizations (ESOs) and Technical Assistance Providers to complete and submit an application.

The Hilltop Business Association is a proud neighborhood organization helping with this project. We are happy to assist you regardless of membership. Our goal is to keep small business IN BUSINESS!
