Restaurant Revitalization Fund Updates

April 25, 2021

Applications will soon open for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF). As such the SBA Connecticut District Office will be holding multiple sessions to give an overview of who is eligible, use of funds, how to apply and the priority application process. The American Rescue Plan appropriated $28.6 billion to RRF and authorized SBA to award funds, not loans. It is important to get the most accurate information out to our Connecticut businesses and entities.

Eligible businesses include food stands, food trucks, food carts, caterers, bars, lounges, taverns and restaurants. Also eligible are snack and nonalcoholic beverage bars (e.g., coffee shops, ice cream shops), bakeries, brewpubs, tasting rooms, taprooms, breweries and/or microbreweries, wineries and distilleries to name a few more.

We hope that you can attend one of these sessions and learn more about the RRF. Most importantly, please share the following links to three upcoming events.
