Today, the U.S. Small Business Administration announced they will begin registrations for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) on Friday, April 30, 2021, at 9 am EDT and open applications on Monday, May 3, 2021, at noon EDT.
Starting Friday, April 30th at 9am, you can register for an account in advance at restaurants.sba.gov.
We also encourage you to take a look at the released guidelines and gather the information required to apply beforehand so you are ready on May 3rd. To help prepare, please take a look at the following:
Please note that for the first 21 days of the application being open, the SBA will accept applications from all eligible applicants, but only process and fund priority group applications. So we encourage you to still apply on May 3, even if you do not qualify as a priority group applicant. You can learn more about what is considered a priority group on the SBA website linked below.
The SBA will also be hosting a variety of live recorded virtual training webinars. See below to register.
You can sign up to receive RRF-related emails from the SBA by signing up here. We will also be sure to keep you updated with the information that you need to know on this program.
