I am thrilled about the news that any adult resident in the State of Texas can now register for the COVID-19 vaccine in Denton County. Anyone interested in adding their name to the Denton County Public Health’s (DCPH) Vaccine Interest Portal waitlist should go to DentonCounty.gov/vaccine.
APRIL IS NATIONAL COUNTY GOVERNMENT MONTH
Counties are one of America’s oldest forms of government, dating back to 1634 when the first county governments (shires) were established in Virginia. The organization and structure of today’s 3,069 county governments are chartered under the state constitutions or laws and are tailored to fit the needs and characteristics of states and local areas. April is National County Government Month and a time to celebrate Denton County.
AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN ACT
The new stimulus package recently signed by the President provides financial grant assistance to many types of restaurants. Establishments across Denton County could benefit from these grants in the foreseeable future.
According to Restaurant Hospitality publication, The American Rescue Plan Act established a $28.6 Billion “Restaurant Revitalization Fund” (RRF) that will run through the SBA. Applications are said to open in a matter of weeks.
Although there are restrictions and limitations, an eligible business may receive a tax-free federal grant equal to the amount of its pandemic-related revenue loss, calculated by subtracting its 2020 gross receipts from its 2019 gross receipts.
