Small Business Administration Providing Grants to Food/Beverage Businesses
The national Small Business Administration is providing grants to food/beverage-focused businesses based on their losses between 2019 and 2020. Priority is being given the first 21 days to owners belonging to underserved populations (women, veterans, socially/economically disadvantaged). Restaurants, bars, food trucks, caterers, and more are eligible.
The great news here is this is a grant, not a loan. No need for repayment as long as the funds are used as intended.
Here’s a link to get you to the SBA website which is where you’ll go to register and later apply:
