Reach Out to Your Elected Officials
Your elected officials need to hear from you how important restaurants are to our communities.
Restaurants need assistance from all levels of government to weather the COVID-19 pandemic. Here is what you can ask for at each level to save your neighborhood restaurant:
Federal: Restaurants say then need meaningful cash relief to survive, and that support must come from the Federal government. Reach out to your U.S. elected officials to ask for restaurant-specific funding.
State: Ask state officials to implement ways to increase restaurant revenue — including by safely increasing capacity and extending alcohol to-go — and to consider the impacts each bill could have on your favorite restaurants as the industry tries to recover.
Local: Ask local officials to implement ways for restaurants to increase revenue such as implementing the 5 Star Program, capping third-party delivery fees, allowing sales tax retention, and waiving license fees.
