Restaurant Revitalization Portal Still Open

SBA still has potential Restaurant Revitalization funding available for eligible establishments with 2019 annual revenue of not more than $50,000.

If you meet this revenue standard, apply now through SBA-recognized point-of-sale vendors or directly via the SBA Restaurant Revitalization Fund Portal.


National Small Business Week

Save the Date: Celebrate Small Business

SBA's economic aid has helped small businesses rebuild and recover during this unprecedented pandemic. We aim to be as entrepreneurial as the entrepreneurs we serve. That means meeting every small business where they are and giving them the support to pivot and thrive going forward. As the nation gets #backontrack, we invite all to join us Sept. 13-15 at a National Small Business Week Virtual Summit to recognize the resiliency, resolve, and renewal of America’s 30 million small businesses on the road to a healthier economic recovery. 

More details to come! Visit  National Small Business Week Virtual Summit
