How to Access Coronavirus Relief Stimulus Funding for Touch-free Restroom Upgrades

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, many educational institutions and live entertainment venues have realized that touch-free restrooms are essential to making their public spaces more hygienic.

What facilities may not have realized is that there are several ways to access Coronavirus Relief Stimulus Funding to improve and update their restrooms with touch-free products. This funding can help facilities both purchase and install touch-free restroom products for a more hygienic environment.

Our comprehensive guide to Coronavirus Relief Stimulus Funding offers numerous resources to explore. (You can also watch this recent webinar.) Here’s a quick overview.

Coronavirus Relief Stimulus Funding for Educational Institutions

There are three major channels for educational institutions to apply for Coronavirus Relief Stimulus Funding:

Coronavirus Relief Stimulus Funding for Entertainment Venues

No industry has been impacted more severely by the pandemic than entertainment venues. These organizations may qualify for an SVO (Shuttered Venue Operating Grant) to cover ordinary and necessary business expenses, including maintenance costs and capital expenditures, to facilitate qualified adaptation of business activities.

Eligible facilities and organizations include:

  • Live venue operators or promoters
  • Theatrical producers
  • Live performing arts organization operators
  • Relevant museum operators
  • Motion picture theatre operators

Several limitations and restrictions apply to these grants—you may find our SVO guide book helpful.
