COVID-19 Relief Programs, By State

Below please find links to business resources by State.  Please keep in mind there may be additional loan and grant resources in larger cities and county assistance programs as well.

We suggest using search terms such as “COVID Financial Assistance” along with your city and/or county where they have offices.

Also please be aware some of these programs have deadlines.  For instance, some have deadlines in May, while others such as Illinois, have April 1 as a deadline to apply.

Be aware that business resources do vary by state. Some available programs we’ve noted in various states include:

  • Grants
  • Loans
  • Deferred filing and/or payment of various taxes
  • Deferred payment of rent and/or mortgages
  • Deferred payment of employee health insurance
  • Ability to return alcoholic beverages
