Recently, a Shuttered Venue Operator Grant (SVOG) survey was sent to members who identified as the primary contact for their venues. We received almost 100 replies. Thank you to the members who responded.
We were asking a few questions for all members who applied for SVOG in order to better help members who were writing appeals or asking for budget reconsiderations. We were looking for similar venues, organizational structure and venue ownership so we could match up venues in need of assistance.
Now, we need this information to help TwinLogic Solutions (TLS) advocate for our members with the SBA and congressional offices on two fronts: 1) those who were declined and 2) advocating for excess SVOG funds to stay with those eligible for this program as the delta variant is becoming an issue with tours being postponed/cancelled either nationally or locally due to the inability to mandate vaccinations or masks. If there are excess funds, we want to keep them in SVOG instead of going to other places.
Data is very important for our advocacy efforts. TLS uses this information (anonymously unless we have your permission) to advocate for our members with congressional offices and federal agencies.
If you did not fill out the survey OR if your status has changed since you filled out the survey the last time, please click this link and complete this quick survey.
