The City of Owensboro on Monday announced a new COVID-19 relief program targeted towards area bars and restaurants impacted by the pandemic.
The new emergency relief program is called the OBKY Restaurant/Bar Supplemental Payroll Program and aims to help restaurant/bar owners struggling to turn a profit keep employees paid.
City officials said the program was developed because of the specific impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on bars and restaurants in the local Owensboro economy.
Business owners can fill out the OBKY Restaurant/Bar Supplemental Payroll Program Form on the City's website.
Applications for the supplemental payroll program must be completed by Friday, Jan 15.
