Governor Tony Evers says the state is providing 45-million dollars in assistance to Wisconsin restaurants and small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding will come from the “We’re All In For Restaurants” program. The Department of Revenue will identify and directly contact the grant recipients. Businesses will not have to apply. Evers says restaurants and other venues have been among the businesses hit hardest. The governor said. “we greatly appreciate the changes they’ve made to prioritize the health and safety of our communities, but now with winter coming, we are glad to provide this support at a critical time.” Assembly Speaker Robin Vos thanked Evers for focusing on the hospitality industry.
