All Initial Hospitality Industry Relief Emergency (HIRE) Funds Allocated in Kansas



The Hospitality Industry Relief Emergency (HIRE) Fund was to provide bridge loans for the state’s hospitality sector during the COVID-19 crisis, but the Kansas Department of Commerce announced that all their initial funds have been distributed until new resources become available.

Hospitality-related businesses can still fill out a form to share how COVID-19 has impacted them, however, it does not guarantee that they will receive HIRE funding. The Kansas Department of Commence advises that small businesses apply for a
U.S. Small Business Administration’s Disaster Relief Loan for the time being.




For 20+ years, the MEET family of products have provided regional and national resources that have kept corporate, association, medical, education, independent, and religious meeting and event planners informed about relevant vendors, industry news, tech innovations, and resources that impact and influence how and where they plan their group business.
