A $28.6 billion restaurant and bar grant program will be made available soon. Members of the Independent Restaurant Coalition partnered with members of Congress to craft the legislation. While the Small Business Administration (SBA) prepares to stand up the Restaurant Revitalization Fund, businesses should take steps to organize the materials necessary to submit an application once it is available. Below are resources to learn more about the program and what businesses can do to prepare for the application. 

Please note that Restaurant Revitalization Fund applicants no longer need to sign up for a account or have a DUNS number. Stay tuned for more updates.
