Ways to Take Action

When the Restaurant Revitalization Fund portal opened earlier this year it was funded with only $28.6B—not nearly enough to meet the needs of the nearly 300,000 restaurants and bars that applied for relief. Members of Congress introduced the Restaurant Revitalization Fund Replenishment Act to add $60 billion dollars to the fund. Please join us in advocating for the program to be refilled so that everyone who needs relief can access it.

Here’s how you can help this bill become law:

  • CALL CONGRESS: Call your members of Congress at the Capitol switchboard to explain how critical this program is for your business: 202-224-3121. Check these state specific fact sheets to for additional data and talking points.

  • POST ON SOCIAL: Share this graphic  or this one on social media and tag your reps using this caption: 

    177,000 independent restaurants and bars never received requested relief from Congress. Last month, @indprestaurants surveyed businesses in our industry to see how they are faring.

    📈 86% say they risk permanent closure without relief from the Restaurant Revitalization Fund

    Call Congress at (202) 224-3121 and ask them to #ReplenishRRF now.

  • TAKEOUT FLYERS: Print out flyers (B&W here) to include with takeout orders. We need our customers to know that independent restaurants and bars are still struggling and need relief from Congress. We also want to encourage our customers to take action, too.

  • HANG A POSTER: Put a poster up at your business (B&W here). Stay visible—our fight to #SaveRestaurants isn’t over.
