Course Description

The Shuttered Venue Operators Grant (SVOG) program was established by the Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act, and amended by the American Rescue Plan Act. The program includes over $16 billion in grants to shuttered venues, to be administered by SBA’s Office of Disaster Assistance. 

Since its development as a part of the Consolidated Appropriates Act back in December of 2020, client and CPAs alike have been waiting on the SBA to provide guidance and details on this program. The application period is expected to open on April 8th.  In this live continuing education webinar, Megan will take you through the key considerations of:
