If you tried to get in on the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant online application process, the bad news is you probably got caught up in the same showstopper results as most organizations. The good news is the application portal will reopen today, Monday April 26 at 12 noon ET.
The Small Business Administration has been posting updates on their Twitter account (h/t Scott Silberstein’s Arts In Action newsletter). The initial problems added more than a little frustration among arts organizations (just read the replies on Twitter!) but getting in sooner than later is still the best alternative.
If it isn’t already on your calendar, set aside time today to give the application portal another try.

We heard you and we are taking action. In response to stakeholder feedback about reopening the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant application this weekend, the application portal will now reopen on Monday, April 26 at 12pm ET.
