New SBA Shuttered Venue Operators Grant Applications Portal

The SBA has launched a splash page for the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant (SVOG) application portal, and will begin accepting applications on April 8. Register here for a March 30 informational webinar on the application process for potential eligible entities.
In addition, potential applicants should also register in the federal government’s System for Award Management, as this is required for an entity to receive a SVOG. Applicants are also encouraged to reference the preliminary application checklist and eligibility requirements.
The American Rescue Plan Act also amended the SVOG program so entities that apply for a PPP loan after December 27, 2020 can also apply for an SVOG, with the eligible entity’s SVOG to be reduced by the PPP loan amount. The PPP loan applications have been updated to reflect this.
