Lewis and Jurnovoy Highlights New Restaurant Debt Relief Fund
Fort Walton Beach, FLA. - Established as a lifeline for the Restaurant and Bar industry, a new $28.6 billion federal debt relief fund may be hard to gain access to for many who need it the most. For the newly established Restaurant Revitalization Fund, which Small Business Administration (SBA) will administer, bankrupted companies will need to have a court-approved bankruptcy reorganization plan in order to apply. Due to this restriction, many struggling restaurants and bars may not be able to get their bankruptcy plans approved before the funding runs out.
The $28.6 billion funds for the program will likely be insufficient to adequately provide a boost to the industry. By May 12, SBA already received over 266,000 requests for funding worth an approximated $65 billion. Already, this amount is significantly above what is available through the fund. According to the SBA, they have already allocated $2.7 billion funds to over 21,000 restaurants and bars.
The Restaurant Revitalization Fund was passed as a part of the third COVID relief packages passed by Congress earlier this year. In his recent May 6th speech, President Joe Biden stated that the fund was established to focus "first on those who were left behind by the other relief programs." Congress worked to create a plan that allowed for a family-run business to receive a piece of the pie without competing with larger corporations.
