The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is awarding funding through the Restaurant Revitalization Program to restaurants, bars, and other similar places of business that serve food or drink. The purpose of this funding is to provide support to eligible entities that suffered revenue losses related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) became public law (P.L. 117-2). Section 5003 established the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF), and appropriated $28.6 billion for SBA to award funds. These appropriations remain available until expended. SBA will continue accepting applications subject to availability of funds.
Fund must be used for eligible uses no later than March 11, 2023.
