**ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT CONCEALED HANDGUN LICENSES**

  • Ohio House Bill 614 extends the grace period of concealed handgun licenses expiring after March 9, 2020. If your Ohio Concealed Carry License expired any time from March 9, 2020 to March 30, 2021, it will be automatically extended to June 30, 2021. If your license expires any time from April 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021, the license expiration is extended an additional 90 days past the expiration date.

  • Importantly, other law enforcement agencies outside of Ohio may not be aware of the extended expiration date; therefore, exercise caution when traveling out of state with an expired Concealed Carry license.

  • Currently, the Champaign County Sheriff’s Office accepts original and renewal applications for anyone residing in any county in Ohio. Effective JULY 1, 2021 the Champaign County Sheriff’s Office will only accept applications for original or renewal licenses for people residing in the following counties: Champaign, Clark, Logan, Madison, Miami, Shelby, and Union.
