Press Release

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Colin Allred (TX-32), today encouraged North Texas restaurants that have been struggling due to the pandemic to apply for relief through the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Restaurant Revitalization Fund. Allred voted for this measure as part of the American Rescue Plan and was a co-sponsor of the Restaurants Act in the previous Congress. 

The fund will provide emergency assistance for eligible restaurants, bars and other qualifying businesses impacted by COVID-19. Applications may be submitted starting May 3. North Texans can register on the SBA’s website starting today (April 30): restaurants.sba.gov. 

“Few businesses have been hit harder during this pandemic than our restaurants. It’s why I have been fighting for a specific restaurant fund, and I proudly voted for the American Rescue Plan, which included this program,” said Allred. “We have one of the best food scenes in the nation, and I encourage restaurants to apply for this relief so we can protect jobs and keep that scene thriving. As always my office is here to help, so reach out if you need assistance with an application.”
