Restaurant Revitalization Fund Program

Restaurant Revitalization Fund RBSK PartnersRestaurant Revitalization Fund Program

On March 11, 2021 the American Rescue Plan Act authorized and allocated $28.6 billion to the Restaurant Revitalization Fund program.

This program provides tax-free grant funding to restaurants and other eligible business that have suffered a pandemic-related loss.

Funding is equal to their pandemic-related revenue loss up to $10 million per business and no more than $5 million per physical location. Use this guide to calculate your amount here.

Funds must be used within the “covered period” which is currently scheduled to end on December 31, 2021. However, the Small Business Administration (SBA) states that recipients are not required to repay the funding as long as funds are used for eligible uses no later than March 11, 2023.
