North Dakota Department of Commerce announces Hospitality ERG
28 Oct 2020
The North Dakota Department of Commerce announced the second round of the Economic Resiliency Grant (ERG) also known as the Hospitality ERG.
Due to the continuing need of assistance, the second round of the ERG will focus on reimbursing hospitality businesses that were directly impacted by Executive Order 2020-06. This includes all restaurants, bars, breweries, cafes and similar on-site dining establishments.
Additionally, the Hospitality ERG will also focus on businesses affected by the closures such as theaters, music and entertainment venues, and professional production companies that support major venue meetings and events.
“The hospitality industry has been one of our hardest-hit economic sectors from a national to local level,” Gov. Doug Burgum said. “We’re grateful to the Emergency Commission and the Legislature’s Budget Section for approving this much-needed relief for these businesses – which are vital for employment, tourism and the quality of life for our residents – as they do their part to slow the spread of COVID-19.”
