Tennessee businesses still needing to certify to claim COVID relief

The Tennessee Department of Revenue reports that more than 33,000 small businesses in Tennessee are eligible for the Tennessee Business Relief Program. Spokesperson Samantha Singer says nearly 60 percent of those business owners still haven�t certified their business to claim a COVID 19 relief payment under the program which was established in June. Since then, Singer says the department has sent out nearly half of the $200 million that was in the program to 13,000 Tennessee businesses. Details about the program can be found at the Tennessee Department of Revenue website.
