Congressman Chris Jacobs, R-NY-27, is announcing a webinar hosted by the Small Business Administration to discuss the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant.
“I first want to commend the SBA for their tireless work to support our small businesses and our communities,” Jacobs said. “One of my top priorities since taking office has been to deliver economic relief to support millions of American small businesses. When we passed the most recent COVID-19 aid package, not only did we deliver $284 billion to support the Paycheck Protection Program, but we also enacted additional provisions such as the Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act that continue to represent our commitment to a strong American comeback.”
This legislation allocated $15 billion to the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant program, which offers up to $10 million in grant funding to eligible organizations. The webinar will take place at 3 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 14, and will cover eligibility, accessibility of grants, and the application process.
Jacobs’ camp advised this webinar will fill up fast, and said that, if additional sessions become available, an update will be provided.

The funding is being distributed through community financial institutions.
