Program Info

This program will provide restaurants with funding equal to their pandemic-related revenue loss up to $10 million per business and no more than $5 million per physical location. Recipients are not required to repay the funding as long as funds are used for eligible uses no later than March 11, 2023. It will be disbursed as a direct payment like the EIDL Advance (i.e. not through a bank only through SBA)

For the first 21 days that the program is open, the SBA will prioritize funding applications from businesses owned and controlled by women, veterans, and socially and economically disadvantaged individuals. All eligible applicants are encouraged to submit applications as soon as the portal opens. Following the 21 days, all eligible applications will be funded on a first-come, first-served basis. 

You are NOT required to have a DUNS number or SAM registration to apply. You cannot apply for this if you applied for the SVOG program.
