  1. SBA's Restaurant Revitalization Fund Notes & How To Apply For Your Restaurant

    On March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 was signed and created $28.6 billion worth of grants for restaurants that were impacted by the pandemic. Created was the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRFG), and funds are available through the US Small Business Administration (SBA). Restaurant owners can now apply and benefit from the SBA RRFG grants and use those funds to build up their restaurants, including kitchen upgrades and any other fund distribution needed to help keep restaurant doors open. 

     

    The RRFG funding is not a loan - funding does not need to be repaid as long as the funds are used for eligible expenses incurred between February 15, 2020 and March 11, 2023.
