1. The RRF application process is relatively straight-forward: Answer 10 basic questions about your business, complete a calculation worksheet (using info from your 2019 & 2020 tax returns, and other SBA relief programs), and self-certify that your answers are truthful.

(And, you DO NOT need to register with SAM.gov or have a DUNS number to apply.)
2. You may receive an award equal to your pandemic-related revenue loss up to $10 million per business (no more than $5 million per physical location).
3. You have almost 2 years to spend the grant on eligible payroll & operating costs.
4. You can have an RRF grant and still claim payroll tax credits, such as ERC and FFCRA paid sick leave. In general, you can use RRF with other federal relief programs, but there are some SBA cross-program eligibility requirements to note(e.g., entities that have an application pending or received a Shuttered Venue Operators Grant are not eligible for RRF.)
5. To ensure that more small businesses can access the grant, the SBA has set aside funding to prioritize small businesses owned by women, veterans, or “socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.”
