The Direct Relief for Restaurants Grant program will award a total of $811,338 in individual grants up to a maximum of $20,000 each. This grant program is designed to assist local restaurants with operating expenses such as rent/mortgage payments, payroll, utilities, purchase of equipment and services to expand outdoor dining through physical improvements including tents, heaters, warmers, and carts, sanitization services, PPE purchases, technology to support carryout and delivery, and infrastructure improvements, including HVAC system upgrades.
Due to limited funding, applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Applicants are strongly encouraged to email their completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org
or to drop it off at the County Administration Building. Please be sure the application is fully complete, as only completed applications will be accepted and reviewed.
To enable funding to reach a wider range of restaurants, we are unable to provide funding to those restaurants that have already been awarded through the restaurant relief program that was released on November 4, 2020.
