Kustoff Co-Sponsors the ENTRÉE Act
WASHINGTON, DC—Today, Congressman David Kustoff (TN-08) co-sponsored the Entrepreneurs Need Timely Replenishment for Eating Establishments (ENTRÉE) Act. This bill will provide $60 billion to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) by repurposing unused money from President Biden’s American Rescue Plan. It would also require all applications to be received, reviewed, processed, and disbursed on a first come, first serve basis.
"Due to COVID-19 shutdowns and increased restrictions on restaurants, many restaurant owners in West Tennessee and across our nation have had to close their doors for extended periods of time. The ENTRÉE Act aims to help American restaurant owners by providing them the assistance they need to successfully re-open," said Rep. David Kustoff. "This legislation will use unspent funds already allocated during the pandemic to restore the RRF. I look forward to working with my colleagues to quickly pass this bill so that restaurants across West Tennessee and our country receive the help they need.”
