The U.S. Small Business Administration has launched its portal for the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant (SVOG). The SBA expects to open the program on Thursday, April 8, 2021.
Eligible entities may be live venue operators or promoters, theatrical producers, live performing arts organization operators, museum operators, zoos and aquariums who meet specific criteria, motion picture theatre operators, and talent representatives.

On Tuesday March 30, 2021 from 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM the SBA will host a SVOG Application Informational Webinar to highlight the application process for potential eligible entities.

For more program information go to the SBA website which includes frequently asked questions, video tutorials, eligibility requirements and preliminary application checklist.

The Paycheck Protection Program ends March 31, 2021. SBA is offering: First Draw PPP Loans and Second Draw PPP Loans for certain businesses who have previously received PPP loan. This program requires you to work with a lender, rather than going straight to the Small Business Administration like the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program.
