Get Assistance With RRF

Anyone considering applying is urged to start organizing their application.

The SBA has also partnered with several Point of Sale (POS) vendors; including Square, Toast, Clover, NCR Corporation (Aloha) to make it easier for restaurants to apply. Each POS partner will also provide support to the application experience, from building pre-packaged documentation, to one-on-one guidance.

While SBA encourages applicants to use the POS ecosystem, applicants without access to point-of-sale service providers can submit their applications electronically using the RRF award portal.
