Relief NOW

Senator Cortez Masto (D-NV) and Senator Cramer (R-ND) introduced the Hospitality and Commerce Job Recovery Act of 2020, a bipartisan bill that will provide targeted economic relief for struggling travel-related businesses. The bill includes improvements to the Employee Retention Tax Credit and several targeted tax credits and deductions for hard-hit travel businesses and workers.

WE ALL NEED THIS BILL. (Cortez Masto, Cramer Lead Legislation to Support the Hospitality, Travel and Tourism Industries | U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada)

Please join us for a targeted social campaign coordinated by U.S. Travel.

We are asking all travel businesses and workers to post on Twitter and Facebook so we can seize the attention of Congress and the administration to tell them we need their help!

U.S. Travel has compiled suggested messaging, sample posts, and social graphics to make it easy for all of us to send out the right message en masse. Please use their Social Guide and join us on Twitter and Facebook!


Join us in demanding Congress finish the work they started and pass, at the very least, a standalone bill that provides relief for small businesses. Time is running out—we must ACT NOW in order to secure our broader industry as much relief and protection as possible. Contact your members of Congress TODAY.

Restaurant ACT

Expanded outdoor dining is an essential lifeline for many restaurants during the ongoing pandemic.  Our most recent survey indicates outdoor dining represents about 44% of revenue for full-service establishments currently.

But the onset of cold weather will require operators to make substantial investments in equipment or risk shutting down outdoor dining.  We are calling on local lawmakers to help restaurant operators in prolonging the outdoor dining season this fall and winter.

We’re asking YOU – restaurant operators and employees – to tell your story of how vital outdoor dining is to your restaurant. Are you worried about the impact cold weather will have on your restaurant’s ability to survive?

By telling your story, we hope to encourage local officials to replicate recent efforts seen in cities such as in the District of Columbia where Mayor Muriel Bowser has allocated $4 million in grants for outdoor dining. 

Upload a quick video HERE, on Restaurants Act.

Thank you for your continued effort on behalf of the industry.
