Great news for independent restaurant owners! This Restaurant Revitalization Grant update just in:
Today, the Small Business Administration (SBA) announced that they are eliminating the System for Award Management (SAM) registration process for independent restaurants and bars applying for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF). Our efforts to encourage the government to streamline the application process paid off, and we’re grateful to the SBA for listening and taking action.
What does this mean for the independent restaurant and bar community? Operators who seek to participate in the RRF do not need to acquire a DUNS number or register for a SAM.gov account. If you’ve already started or finished the process, your progress will not have an impact on funds awarded once the program is live. Please note that this change is a good one: removing the requirement eliminates a major barrier, helping create a level field that gives the smallest businesses a better shot at getting relief.
