An eligible business may receive a tax-free federal grant equal to the amount of its pandemic-related revenue loss, calculated by subtracting its 2020 gross receipts from its 2019 gross receipts.
Eligible expenses are those incurred from February 15, 2020 to December 31, 2021, or a date determined by the SBA.
The SBA can adjust awards based on demand and “relative local costs” in the markets where RRF businesses operate. Otherwise;
- $23.6 billion is available for the SBA to award in an equitable manner to businesses of different sizes based on annual gross receipts.
- $5 billion is available to businesses with gross receipts of $500,000 or less during 2019.
