Restaurant Revitalization Fund

The restaurant industry has been among the hardest-hit sectors during the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help bring jobs back and revive the industry, the American Rescue Plan established the $28.6 billion Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) spearheaded by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The RRF seeks to provide grants to eligible food service businesses which do not have to be repaid. 

This week the Small Business Administration is offering webinars in English, Mandarin, and Spanish languages to share information about RRF. Please join to have your questions answered.
