Restaurants and indoor event venues can get 100% of December losses

Posted

Douglas County restaurants and indoor event venues are now able to receive reimbursement of up to 100% of their December revenue losses after an expansion of the county’s “Restaurant and Indoor Event Venue Grant” program, according to a news release from the county.

Restaurants and indoor event venues with physical locations in the county and 200 or fewer employees may be eligible for the COVID-19 impact grant. Through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, Douglas County has allocated $15 million to fund a grant for restaurants and indoor event venues that have experienced revenue loss due to capacity reductions required by recent public health orders, according to the release.

Businesses that have previously applied for the grant will be contacted by county staff for additional information, and grant award amounts will be increased. Eligible restaurants and event venues that have not applied are invited to do so as soon as possible and no later than 8 a.m. Dec. 30, 2020, as grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to qualifying businesses, based on the order in which the applications were received, according to the release.

Owners of qualifying businesses are encouraged to review eligibility details for the Douglas County CARES “Restaurant and Event Venue Impact Grant” by visiting douglas.co.us/restaurant-event-impact-grant. Individual grant amounts will be based upon COVID-19 impact and revenue loss as demonstrated in the application. In addition to up to $200,000 available for losses from March 1 through Nov. 30, 100% of calculated December revenue losses will be reimbursed, up to an additional maximum of $200,000.

More details are available on the “Restaurant and Event Venue Impact Grant” web page at douglas.co.us/restaurant-event-impact-grant. More information on other Douglas County CARES grant opportunities is available at douglas.co.us/cares-act.
