(WTXL) — More relief is coming to local restaurants in the area by way of the Restaurant Revitalization Fund created under the American Rescue Plan has provided $1,059,515.82 to six restaurants in the Big Bend.

“Restaurants are essential to the vitality of our communities yet were among the businesses most impacted by the pandemic,” Rep. Al Lawson (FL-05), who voted for the bill, said. “When we passed the American Rescue Plan to help businesses and families through this crisis, we also included billions of dollars in aid specifically for restaurants."

The Restaurant Revitalization Fund grants businesses funding according to their pandemic-related losses up to $10 million per business.

"This money is keeping workers paid and ensuring more restaurants can weather this crisis and be ready to reopen once it is safe to do so," said Rep. Lawson. "It is especially important now as the Delta variant forces more restaurants to again limit their operations.”
