While National Restaurant Association continue to push for Congress to replenish the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF), they’ve been working to identify other avenues for relief to pandemic-related revenue loss. Association have engaged the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to expand its Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program which was created to help small businesses struggling to cover business operations. If the program expands, more restaurants would qualify for loans; amounts for loans would be higher; and the funds could be used to offset previous commercial/private debt. For more information on how you can benefit from the EIDL program, check out this webinar led by the NRA earlier this summer and a group letter urging SBA Administrator Guzman to adopt changes to the EIDL program.
