Arts organizations in Ohio and around the country are waiting for the relaunch of a system that will allow them to apply for billions in COVID relief – after it shut down on the day it was supposed to open for business in early April. Statehouse correspondent Karen Kasler reports.

Along with individual stimulus checks and more help for the unemployed, there’s a lot of money headed to Ohio and its cities and counties once the latest 1.9 trillion dollar COVID-19 relief bill is signed into law.

Small businesses and local communities would receive hundreds of millions of dollars to help with recovery from the coronavirus pandemic under a $1 billion initiative announced by Ohio Govenro Mike DeWine that also includes aggressive marketing of the state as a place to work and live.
