San Francisco restaurant owner Laurie Thomas says the money can be used for payroll, rent, utilities, and vendor costs. But help is on the way. The Small News Administration’s Restaurant Revitalization Fund is giving out 28.6 billion dollars in grants to help restaurants and bars recoup their losses.
“We are moving forward but not out of the woods yet. From a business perspective, that means not confident to reemploy people, and that is the goal to bring our employees back.” “We’re in debt. The federal government, our landlords, in debt to PG&E. We need help so we don’t permanently shut down,” said SF bar owner Ben Bleiman.
