Senator Schumer and several of his colleagues have introduced the Heroes Small Business Lifeline Act, a comprehensive package of small business assistance from the House-passed HEROES 2.0 that would provide a broad mix of relief and investment for hard-hit and underserved small businesses.

The bill includes the RESTAURANTS Act and the Save our Stages (SOS) Act, which provide dedicated assistance for industries that rely on large gatherings, including restaurants, concert venues, and theaters. These programs offer a financial lifeline to our industry that can help sustain your businesses through the long winter ahead and improve businesses’ ability to make it to the other side of this pandemic.

Senator Schumer’s been a outspoken advocate for the hospitality industry throughout this crisis – someone we’ve come to count on to make sure our concerns are front and center of all discussions about Covid-19 relief. There’s still work to be done, but our chances look better every day.
