Job losses are at an all-time high, and businesses everywhere are struggling as they stay closed or try to open amid uncertainty and a new normal. From restaurants and bookstores, to theaters and auto body shops, to realtors and barbers – American enterprise is the backbone of our country. And we need help.

Right now, businesses are learning to operate in a new normal — potential reduced capacity, stricter admittance policies, and new expenses to meet important public health and safety measures. This means that we, as business owners and workers, have to navigate practices never before seen or used.

Without assistance from America’s Recovery Fund, American businesses will not be able to reopen, make payroll, and serve our customers. Our communities will be diminished by our loss and negatively affected on a number of levels — economically and socially. As we work to heal America, we are asking Congress to take action and create America’s Recovery Fund to bring our economy and country back.
