[ONLINE] Webinar: Understanding the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant | April 14

Event Overview

The Shuttered Venue Operators Grant, which opened on April 8, will provide $16 billion in grants to shuttered venues through the SBA’s Office of Disaster Assistance. Eligible entities may include live venue operators, theatrical producers, live performing arts organization operators, motion picture theatre operators, museums, and historic homes. Applicants may qualify for grants equal to 45 percent of their gross earned revenue, with the maximum amount available for a single grant award of $10 million.

Today’s webinar will do a deep dive into the program, answering questions including:

  • How do I determine if I’m eligible for SVOG?
  • If I’m eligible for SVOG, PPP, and EIDL, how do I decide which program is the best for me?
  • What do I need to know about the application process, and how do I gather my paperwork?

This hour-long workshop will take place over Zoom and can be joined by video or phone. Webinar information will be sent in advance of the event.
