(Mike Osborne)  -- Federal officials plan Monday morning to re-launch grant applications for aid seen as vital to the survival of Middle Tennessee’s many pandemic shuttered music venues.

The Small Business Administration tried to launch an online application portal the first week of April to hand out $15 billion dollars worth of federal pandemic grants. But the aid website crashed almost immediately.

SBA says the portal will reopen Monday at 11 a.m. Central Time.

Small venues may qualify for grants equal to 45% of their gross earned revenue. Grant details and the application link can be found here.
