On August 11, 2021, the SBA announced updates to the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant program, including:
  • New applications will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. PT on Friday, August 20, 2021.
  • The SBA will open the program for supplemental SVOGs for 50% of the original award amount, capped at a total of $10 million (initial and supplemental combined) later this month. Details will be announced at a later date.
