I've been reading up on the Restaurant Revitalization Fund, which was part of the $1.9 Trillion America Rescue Plan Act (e.g. the COVID bill), and is a new stimulus that is going to provide $28.6 Billion of grants to restaurants that were impacted by the pandemic

https://restaurant.org/downloads/pdfs/advocacy/understanding...

I could hopefully see a lot of Lightspeed's restaurant customers using some of the funds they receive to upgrade their POS system (or switch to LSPD's products) and make other improvements that will increase business, and hopefully boost LSPD's restaurant business.

This application to apply for the funds is not yet even available, so this $28 Billion won't start to circulate for at least a few more weeks/months. Hopefully it gets to the restaurants that need it right when business is ready to pick up.

Sounds like another positive reason to believe that Ligthtspeed will do really well as cities and economies get more and more open and closer to normal later this year and into 2022.
