Learn more about grants and eligibility.

The Restaurant Revitalization Fund is designed to support the recovery of small and medium-sized food and beverage businesses. Funding takes the form of grants that will be awarded by the Small Business Administration (SBA). Eligible individual businesses can receive up to $5 million, while groups with multiple locations (across all affiliates) can receive up to $10 million. The first 21 days of funds will prioritize businesses that are at least 51% owned and controlled by individuals who are women, veterans, and/or socially and economically disadvantaged individuals (see the SBA program guide for the definitions of these groups).

How is a grant different from a loan?

Generally, a grant from the government is free money that is intended for a specific purpose; unlike a loan, the grant amount does not need to be repaid. Restaurant Revitalization Fund grants are not treated as taxable gross income by the IRS.

Eligible Expenses

RRF grants can be used for a variety of eligible expenses during the covered period from Feb 15, 2020 to March 11, 2023. Some examples include eligible payroll costs, rent/mortgage, certain debt, utilities, maintenance, construction of outdoor seating, covered supplies, food and beverage expenses, and other eligible operating expenses. See the SBA program guide for details on eligible expenses.

Eligibility Requirements

Any restaurant is eligible if you’ve experienced a pandemic-related revenue loss and considered a place where the public or patrons can gather for the primary purpose of being served food or drink2. For example, restaurants, bars, and even food stands, food trucks, tasting rooms and caterers. Businesses are ineligible if they are publicly-traded, government-operated, or have applied for or received a Shuttered Venue Operations Grant. Businesses are also ineligible if they own/operate (together with any affiliates) more than 20 locations, whether under the same name or not.

Preparing for the Application Process

  • Ownership & Identification Numbers: Gather a list of all owners with 20% or more of the equity in the applicant (or, if no owner has 20% ownership, a list of enough owners whose equity interests add up to 20%). You will be asked to provide each owner’s tax identification number (EIN, SSN, ITIN), ownership percentage, and address. Note that the applicant is the legal entity applying for a RRF grant.
  • PPP Details: If you received (or will receive) a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan, you will want to know how much you received (or will receive) and the SBA PPP Loan number.
  • Verification of Sales Data: Any information you need to verify your 2019 and 2020 gross receipts, if applicable (e.g., tax returns or gross sales from your Sales Report in Toast Web).
  • Eligible Expenses: Business that made their first sale on or between 1/1/20 and 3/11/21, or have not yet opened but have incurred eligible expenses, will be asked to enter information about eligible expenses that they've incurred between 2/15/20 and 3/11/21 (in addition to any information about gross receipts earned between 1/1/20 and 3/11/21, if applicable). If you made your first sale after 1/1/19 but before 12/31/19, you can also opt to enter expenses and have your grant calculation based off that information instead of your revenue. See the list of eligible expenses in the SBA program guide here.
  • Supporting documentation: Additional documentation may be required for gross receipts and, if applicable, eligible expenses. You can see a list of eligible acceptable documentation from the SBA here.
  • Questions about the application or status of your application? Contact the SBA at 844-279-8898 or visit their website at https://sba.gov/restaurants. Visit the Toast Restaurant Revitalization Fund FAQs for information on Toast’s application portal

2Note that bakeries, brewpubs, tasting rooms, taprooms, breweries, microbreweries, inns, wineries and distilleries must cross a 33% threshold of actual on-site gross receipts directly to consumers (i.e. not wholesale sales), or have a business model that plans for at least 33% of gross receipts to be on-site directly to consumers for businesses that have not yet opened.

Restaurant Revitalization Grants are made by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Toast has partnered with the SBA to help facilitate your RRF Grant application process, but Toast is not affiliated with the SBA and all eligibility and approval determinations are made by the SBA and not by Toast. Submitting an application does not guarantee approval, and because funds are limited, your application may not be processed before funds run out. The SBA may modify the terms or availability of the RRF Grant program at any time.
