Fox Theater GA

ATLANTA – Today, Congresswoman Nikema Williams (GA-05) announced that 565 small businesses in the Fifth District received $245,712,324 in support from Small Business Administration Programs. The funding for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) and Shuttered Venues Operators Grant (SVOG) comes from the American Rescue Plan, which Congresswoman Williams helped pass. In the Fifth District, 488 restaurants received $187,593,552 in RRF money, and 77 venues received $58,118,772 in SVOG money. 

“Restaurants and performing arts venues were some of the hardest-hit small businesses from the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Congresswoman Williams. “The funding in these two programs will not only keep people employed, but they are also a crucial lifeline for the small businesses that make the Fifth District a great place to live. I am glad so many small businesses have taken advantage of these programs and I urge any small business owner who thinks they may be eligible for this relief to reach out to the Small Business Administration.”
