CARES Act funding to be used to help small businesses in Central Ohio

The City of Columbus and Franklin County have paid out more than $8 million to small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic and more help is coming for those businesses. 

The money is coming from CARES Act funding, which the city and county used to set up a program for struggling small businesses, especially those owned by minorities. 

It is all part of the Columbus Franklin County COVID-19 Small Business Response and Recovery Fund, which launched in June.

Mayor Andrew Ginther said he and the partners on this want to focus on minority-woned small shops in Central Ohio, who some say were left out of federal funding like the PPP.

So far, the program has paid out $8.3 million in three ways:
