COVID-19 Emergency Grants for Small Businesses
OPEN – Department of Agriculture Relief & Recovery Grants
Coming! Shuttered Venue Operators Grants
The $16 billion in federal SVOG grants are targeted to live venue operators and promoters, theatrical producers, performing arts organization operators, motion picture theater operators, museum operators and talent representatives who were impacted by COVID-19. Qualifying applicants who applied for a PPP loan after Dec. 27, 2020, can also apply for this grant, with the eligible award being reduced by the amount of the PPP loan. The Department of Commerce does not manage this grant.
Due to technical difficulties, SBA has temporarily suspended the SVOG application portal. SBA is working closely with the portal vendors to reopen as soon as possible. SBA will share advance notice of the time and date before the reopening so all applicants can be prepared and to ensure fair and equal access. Applicants may continue to register for a new account.
The portal is supposed to open by Apr. 23.
Coming! Restaurant Revitalization Fund
The Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) provides funding to help restaurants and other eligible businesses keep their doors open. This program will provide restaurants with funding equal to their pandemic-related revenue loss up to $10 million per business and no more than $5 million per physical location. Recipients are not required to repay the funding as long as funds are used for eligible uses no later than March 11, 2023. The Department of Commerce does not manage this grant program.
