Starting today, you can register for an account on the Small Business Administration (SBA) website to apply for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) by visiting restaurants.sba.gov
We encourage you to register today so you are as prepared as possible when you apply. As a reminder, applications will open on Monday, May 3, 2021, at noon EDT. If you plan to apply through Toast or Square, you do not need to register beforehand on the SBA website (other POS partners still apply through SBA).
Once the application opens on Monday, we encourage you to apply as soon as possible as funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Prior to the application going live on Monday at noon, please review 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.
