Please be sure to keep saving your work and copying answers into a WORD or email document, in case the new portal goes down temporarily. That way, you can just copy and paste your answers back in if the application was not saved.
If you have any further questions, please refer to our COVID-19 Resources page and come to my Zoom Office Hours at 11am EST on Friday to share your experience and learn from others.
The Shuttered Venue Operators Grant (SVOG) program includes over $16 billion in grants to shuttered venues, to be administered by SBA’s Office of Disaster Assistance.
The SVOG program is open for applications now.
