Nonprofit Reimbursing Relief Grants

Deadline:  November 27, 2020

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) is providing up to $25 million in federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act grants to nonprofit agencies that serve low-income Ohioans and have been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The purpose of these grants is to provide this assistance to organizations that have accumulated unemployment debt as a result of the pandemic and are devoted to helping Ohioans during difficult times. Any grants awarded may be applied to remaining unemployment charge balances and/or can serve as a refund of such charges incurred due to COVID-19. If taken as a refund, the grants may be applied toward operational expenses.
