Applications are now being accepted by the U.S. Small Business Adminstration for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund.
Part of the American Rescue Plan Act, the Restaurant Revitalization Fund is providing emergency aid to restaurants, bars and other businesses such as caterers and distileries.
Rachel Bowling is the Director of the Small Business Develpment Center at Morehead State University. She says the funds can be used for a wide range of business expenses.
Bowling also encourages businesses that may be hesitant to apply to do so anyway since nearly every type of business setup is qualified to receive aid under the Restaurant Revitalization Fund.
Local businesses seeking assistance can contact the Morehead State University Small Business Develoment Center at 606-783-2895.
