The host and each guest will review the range of resources and financial management tools,  plus grants or loans aimed at helping small businesses recover from the pandemic as quickly as possible. In addition. The discussions will touch on the assistance and support available for small businesses through the recently enacted $1.9 billion American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA), including grants to restaurants and hospitality businesses.
