DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Time was almost up to apply for a grant program designed to help small businesses in Dayton. But Friday, the City of Dayton announced the deadline to apply for a CARES Axt small business grant has been extended, and the maximum award has been raised to $15,000.

The Dayton COVID-19 Small Business Capitol Grants Program is intended to help cover the cost of building materials, permanent or temporary seating and furnishings or fixtures. The city said in August that eligible businesses have to be located within the Dayton city limits and cannot be a part of a national chain.

Grants of up to $15,000, up from the previous $10,000 are available to assist with the costs of installing new or changing existing spaces to meet public health guidelines. The deadline to apply for the grant is now 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25.
