Months of lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic left a clear and devastating impact on many locally owned food and beverage businesses along the Gulf Coast.

As these businesses begin rebuilding, help could come in the form of the Restaurant Revitalization Fund. The fund was started by the Small Business Administration to offer assistance to food and beverage businesses that have been impacted by the pandemic.

Gulfport Public Information Officer LaShaundra Smith is encouraging all food and beverage business that qualify to apply. “The SBA has launched the Restaurant Revitalization Fund which is phenomenal because that is an industry that has been hit so hard during this pandemic. Between having to shut down their dining rooms or not having events where they can gain business, the fact that they are launching something like this is going to give people in food service a boost hopefully.”

Applications are officially open. For more information, including qualifications, visit sba.gov.
