Relief Wizard Terms & Conditions

This wizard is a courtesy tool to help you navigate the various business support services established for COVID-19 relief. To apply for a particular program, you will need to apply through that program’s website. We cannot guarantee eligibility and using this tool does not reserve any funding or a place in any application queue. Each individual program and administrative agency will determine your eligibility when you apply to the program. This tool provides suggestions only. While updates to this tool are being made regularly, due to the ever-changing nature of these programs and state, federal, and local laws during the COVID-19 crisis, this tool may not be all-encompassing.  The information you share with the Wizard may be shared with Maryland State agencies to improve access to benefits and programs.
