American Rescue Plan Act provides $28B of grant support to help America’s restaurants, bars, and nightclubs recover from the COVID pandemic, through a program called the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF).
The RRF web page and the web landing site are both up and running, and is the best source for the most up-to-date information. RRF is NOT ready to accept applications yet. Applicants and stakeholders are encouraged to visit the site to determine eligibility and prepare for program application.
