Dear Paris,

The PROMISE Act launches this week. This is our chance to bring the attention and resources to businesses with gross annual revenue less than $1 million. This money could mean the difference in surviving and thriving for our small business community. Here's what you do:

  • If you had less than $1 million in gross revenue in 2021 or 2022 go to The PROMISE Act site and see if you're eligible - AND APPLY
  • If you made more, pass The PROMISE Act site on to your neighbor or supplier or customer or vendor

If we do neither, the money will go to some other worthy area of the Metro. That is absolutely a promise.
