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.
POST ON SOCIAL: Share this graphic on social media and tag your reps using this caption: Restaurant Revitalization Fund grants are helping rebuild our industry, but only ⅓ of the independent restaurants and bars that applied received grants. Congress must refill the fund to make sure all eligible businesses are able to access relief quickly. Join me in urging Congress to #ReplenishRRF at 202-224-3121.
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.
