Mayor John Cranley addresses the media at Nation Kitchen and Bar in Westwood on Oct. 20, 2020.

Local restaurants and bars are getting a boost under the pandemic. The Taste of Cincinnati All Winter program will give restaurants up to $10,000 to stay open. Mayor Cranley announced the funds last week at Nation Kitchen and Bar in Westwood.

Another relief program is also coming for Cincinnatians affected by the pandemic. The mayor wants to forgive overdue balances for Greater Cincinnati Water Works customers who are experiencing hardship due to COVID-19. Mayor Cranley says there will be no shutoff until May 1, 2021.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss pandemic relief efforts is Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley.
