Shuttered Venue Operators Grant Program

The Shuttered Venue Operators (SVO) Grant program was established by the Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act.

SBA Update 4-9-21: When the SBA launched the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant (SVOG) application portal today (4-9-21), some technical issues occurred, despite multiple successful tests. After working with our vendors to address them as quickly as possible, the SBA temporarily suspended the portal and will re-open it as soon as possible to ensure all applicants have fair and equal access.

They are working closely with the SVOG application portal vendors to re-open as soon as possible. You can still register in the portal and they will share updates as they come available. We will also share an exact time and date prior to the re-opening of the SVOG application portal.
