Small business EAST ST. LOUIS – To promote resources available to small businesses and hear from local owners and entrepreneurs, State Senator Christopher Belt (D-Swansea) is accepting applications to tour shops, restaurants and other establishments in the 57th Senate District.

“Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, small businesses have faced unimaginable challenges,” Belt said. “I want to tour local businesses to show support, empower owners, and hear their stories. It takes the work of all of us to help keep their doors open.”

Belt hopes to tour restaurants, retail shops and businesses that provide personal services. All tours will be in compliance with the state’s public health guidelines and restrictions.

Applications are open, and interested business owners can find the application here. The program will start in the coming weeks and Belt requests that businesses submit their applications soon. Once an application is received, a member of Belt’s team will respond with additional details.
