SVO (Shuttered Venue Operators)

No date has been set yet for the start of the SVO (Shuttered Venue Operators) grant program ($15 billion) to support “live performing arts organization operators”, as the SBA is currently drafting regulations and guidance. Taking time to sort it out is a good thing, especially as once the program launches it will prioritize venues that have the greatest percent of lost revenues and then move quickly to other eligible venues. There is also a planned set aside of $2B for the smallest entities. Eligible entities will apply directly to the SBA, either via its own portal or through https://www.grants.gov/. (yet to be determined, but you can save a potential step now by signing up your venue on grants.gov.) Please note that the SVO grant program is new, unlike the PPP program, and so it will take the SBA a little while longer to get it up and running.

More details as we have them.
