The Small Business Administration is getting ready to accept applications for tax free grants to be paid from the $28.6 billion Restaurant Revitalization Fund.
Qualified business recipients are eligible to receive funding equal to their pandemic-related revenue loss (2019 revenue minus 2020 revenue) up to $10 million, reduced by PPP loan proceeds received.
If you qualify for one of these grants, it is important to submit your application on the first day the SBA starts accepting applications. The demand for these grants is expected to exceed the funds available.
Here is a link to the sample application form released by the SBA earlier this week:
