THE CREST LONG BEACH ASKING FOR ASSITANCE
When COVID hit in March we had to close the business, I applied for all the assistance that was offered. Many of the websites were so overwhelmed that getting into them was difficult at best. I did receive some funds however they were very small amounts . By the time my applications were reviewed the larger businesses with accountants and attorneys that knew how to navigate the system had taken all the funds and us little guys were denied access to anything. Never did I expect this to continue for close to a year . The funds requested are to pay past rent , utilities and licenses as the bills continue to pile up during the closure. The next round of funding the government is offering is very little. They are loans not grants and they will have to be reimbursed which will create another burden on the business. 2020 was to be our 25th anniversary . I had many plans to celebrate the bar and customers who support us. We want to continue offering a safe space for LGBTQ for years to come. We appreciate ALL OF YOU and miss having the smiles and fun you bring .
