Grants For Restaurants
The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation has created a Restaurant Employee Relief Fund to support U.S. restaurant workers financially impacted by the coronavirus crisis.
Beginning April 2, restaurant employees can apply online at RERF.US to receive a one-time, $500 check for use towards housing, transportation, utilities, childcare, groceries, medical bills and/or student loans. The NRAEF will administer the grants, offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Celebrity chef/restaurateur Guy Fieri is helping the Foundation launch the campaign nationwide, which encourages everyone to contribute to the fund.

The Greg Hill Foundation has created a "Restaurant Strong Fund"
The Greg Hill Foundation has teamed up with Samuel Adams* to support those from the Massachusetts restaurant industry who have been impacted by the Covid-19 closures. Together, and with the insights of notable Boston-area chefs Ming Tsai (Blue Dragon), Ken Oringer (Little Donkey) and Chris Coombs (Boston Chops), we will be raising awareness and funds to provide grants to full-time restaurant workers in Massachusetts who are dependent on wages plus tips to cover basic living expenses and provide for their families.
