WASHINGTON (WJZ) – The US Small Business Administration is launching a new program to help the food service industry hard hit by the pandemic.

The SBA is prioritizing financing the hardest hit small businesses through the Restaurant Revitalization Fund.

The goal is to make sure these companies meet payroll, buy supplies, and get what they need to comply with COVID restrictions. Applications will be accepted shortly.
