An appeal for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund to be replenished

“There’s no doubt would be helpful for us,” she said. “I’m going to do everything I can to sustain this business for us and keep people’s jobs and keep this community and this wonderful building but if I can’t pay the bills, I don’t know but I’m hopeful.” According to the Small Business Administration, 177,000 business that submitted eligible applications did not receive any funding, the federal dollars ran out and now owners like Ruskaup and the Colorado Restaurant Association are pushing for Congress to replenish the fund. 9NEWS contacted a number of members of Congress representing Colorado to see where the efforts stood and have yet to hear back. 

“I got zero.” Ruskaup said. “We received an email saying we’re out of money and a ‘we’ll be in touch’ kind of thing and then they closed the portal.” Lisa Ruskaup the owner of Carbon Cafe and Habit Doughnuts was one of the applicants. She said when she applied the portal revealed she was eligible for roughly $375,000. 

The RFF was established by the American Rescue Plan Act to help businesses stay open. The fund was to provide funding to businesses for their pandemic-related revenue loss. Last month the U.S Small Business Administration announced the closured of the relief fund. It left about 64% of its eligible applicants without a dime.
