Subject: Restaurant Revitalization Fund Opening Monday
Good Afternoon, We have just received notice that the Restaurant Revitalization Fund will open this Monday May 3rd, thus we are making a hard push to get information out to our underserved communities.  For the first 21 days that the program is open, the SBA will prioritize funding applications from businesses owned and controlled by women, veterans, and socially and economically disadvantaged individuals, including Hispanic, Black, Native American, and AAPI -owned businesses. All eligible applicants are encouraged to submit applications as soon as the portal opens. Following the 21 days, all eligible applications will be funded on a first-come, first-served basis. Please find attached two announcements, one for a Spanish call-in session tomorrow, and one for an English webinar on Friday.  Please feel free to distribute to your constituency, and please let me know if you have any questions on this program, I’m happy to run through the criteria with you. Also, if you’d like to schedule an info session just for your communities, I would be happy to provide a detailed lecture for you, and if you set it up via Zoom, I can provide a translator.  We suspect the funding will go fast, so if you’d like something set up for next week just let me know. Thank you for helping to get the word out on this meaningful program!  Alexandria M.
