Deadline Approaching for Hospitality Recovery Grant Applications

By Sam Miller
The deadline to apply for the COVID-19 Hospitality Industry Recovery Program (CHIRP) is next Friday. Hospitality industry businesses have until then to apply for recovery funds. Food & Beverage and Lodging are the applicable businesses. CHIRP funds are available to businesses classified as Accommodations or Food Services and Drinking Place. The grants are awarded in $5,000 increments up to $50,000 and can be to cover operating expenses not covered by Federal or State PPP and CARES loans. A business is not disqualified from CHIRP if they did receive PPP and CARES funding in the past. Grant Guidelines, Grant Application Form, and a FAQ sheet are available at www.WayneEconomic.com.
