Are you a restaurant owner, food truck, caterer, or bar owner? A baker, brewer, or other food producer who primarily sells on-site?
The U.S. Small Business Administration is pleased to announce the Restaurant Revitalization Fund, which is specifically designed to provide direct funding awards to help small restaurants get back on their feet. This Fund features an easy-to-understand application. Additionally, the first 21 days of the program applications will be reserved for Women-Owned, Veteran-Owned, and socially & economically disadvantaged small restaurants.
This funding program was created by the American Rescue Plan Act and provides resources to qualifying businesses which experienced losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
Please join the SBA Maine District Office on Friday, April 30, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. or Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. for a FREE webinar on how the RRF program works and how you may qualify for these funds that will NOT need to be repaid. Also learn about available technical assistance supports from Maine’s SBA Resource Partners.
Please register to attend the webinars, hosted by The Maine District Office of the Small Business Administration, where they will attempt to answer any questions you may have:
