Providing immediate relief to neighborhood restaurants in need.
The Restaurant Resilience Fund supports neighborhood restaurants in need by providing financial assistance through a forgivable donation-based grant. Eligible restaurants will be awarded funds to help reduce business closures, offset reduced revenues, and provide immediate relief from expenses accrued during a seemingly endless era of lockdowns, social distancing, and other disruptions.
As restrictions lift and restaurants begin to open more fully, we recognize that many restaurants are still just breaking even. Our goal is not only to support past losses brought on by Covid-19 but to assist restaurants through the next phase of the pandemic and recovery.
We believe that independent businesses enhance the diversity and vitality of our neighborhoods and create a strong sense of community. We’re determined to help mom-and-pop shops remain resilient.
