Duration: 1 hour, 5 minutes


Join U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Administrator Isabella Guzman to learn more about eligibility, applications, and priority access to the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF). Applications will soon be accepted for RRF grants, which will distribute $28.6 billion to restaurants sustaining losses during COVID-19.  Economically and socially disadvantaged owned small businesses – including Black Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Asian Pacific Americans, and Subcontinent Asian Americans – are among the groups with priority access to grants in the first 21 days.

This webinar is co-hosted by the Multicultural Foodservice & Hospitality Alliance (MFHA) and the National Restaurant Association.

The Mission of MFHA is to bring the economic benefits of diversity and inclusion to the food and hospitality industry by building bridges and delivering solutions. MFHA commits to delivering more connections and opportunities to build its Members’ Cultural Intelligence to effectively engage multicultural employees, customers, and communities.
