SBA Announces First Round of Technology Partners Participating in Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) Program

Last Updated on Apr 23, 2021 at 10:34am | COVID-19

The SBA announced the first round of technology partners participating in a new initiative for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) - a program that will allow eligible restaurants and other food establishments to access the RRF application or data they need to fill out the application through their trusted point-of-sale (POS) service providers. SBA is proud to announce partnerships with Clover ®, NCR Corporation, Square, and Toast in this groundbreaking effort to provide a customer-centric approach to the delivery of relief funds.
 
Once the SBA announces when applications will be accepted, qualifying restaurants will be able to work directly with their point-of-sale service providers to help them apply for the RRF. Each point-of-sale partner is helping in different ways - from providing a fully integrated application experience, to building pre-packaged point-of-sale documentation, to holding interactive webinars. In all cases, these partnerships allow for thousands of restaurant owners to accelerate their application submission process.
 
While SBA encourages applicants to use the POS ecosystem, applicants without access to point-of-sale service providers can submit their applications electronically at restaurants.sba.gov.
 
SBA is in ongoing conversations with other interested parties to continue to widely and equitably deliver an experience that is centered around who it is serving – owners of restaurants, bars, breweries, bakeries, etc. A full list of official point-of-sale service providers will be continually updated and can be found at www.sba.gov/restaurants.
