At his Wednesday briefing, the Governor noted that his administration will be providing guidance on outdoor and summer activities in the next week or two.

Restaurant Revitalization Fund 

The American Rescue Plan Act established the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) to provide funding to help restaurants and other eligible businesses keep their doors open. This $28.6 billion program will provide restaurants with funding equal to their pandemic-related revenue loss. For more information, please visit our recent blog post.
