RRF platform to close
U.S. Small Business Administration Administrator Isabel Guzman announced the closure of the Restaurant Revitalization Fund program, signed into law by President Joe Biden as part of the American Rescue Plan.
The Restaurant Revitalization Fund application platform will remain open for the next two weeks to allow applicants to check their status, address payment corrections or ask questions. The SBA will disable access to the platform on July 14.
The program provided economic aid to restaurants and other establishments during the pandemic.
As of June 30, 2021, the RRF program received more than 278,000 submitted eligible applications representing more than $72.2 billion in requested funds, and approximately 101,000 applicants have been approved to restaurants, bars and other restaurant-type businesses.
With the closure of the RRF, the SBA will continue to deliver economic aid to help small businesses recover with critical relief through other programs.
