Help struggling farmers, ranchers, and small businesses that suffered an economic loss as a result of devastation unleashed by
the COVID-19 Pandemic

Dear Colleague:

I invite you to join me as a sponsor of H.R. 6292, the COVID-19 Small Business Recovery Grants Act of 2020, which establishes a $1 billion fund to provide direct relief to ranchers,
farmers, and small businesses that suffer an economic loss as a result of devastation unleashed by the pandemic.

A business or resident may receive payment for losses associated with the COVID-19 Pandemic.  If claimants have already received compensation for their loss from another source,
such as another government agency or insurance company, the amount received will be reduced so that no claimant receives funds in excess of actual loss.

This legislation is modeled after H.R. 3930, the
Hurricane Harvey Small Business Recovery Grants Act,
which I introduced in the 115th Congress and is crafted to preserve the economic viability of small businesses devastated by the COVID-19 Pandemic and to ensure that no one is left
behind as the affected communities across the nation recover.

I invite you to cosponsor this important legislation. If you have any questions or wish to cosponsor, please contact my Policy Director Lillie Coney, at or by telephone at (202) 225-3816.

Very Truly Yours,

Sheila Jackson Lee
Member of Congress
