Outdoor Dining Grant – Boston

Outdoor Dining Grant - Boston, Massachusetts

The Greg Hill Foundation’s Restaurant Strong Fund and Grubhub are on a mission to transform outdoor dining for small business restaurants throughout the country. Outdoor dining provides an incredible opportunity for increased revenues but with high costs for furniture, décor and upkeep, restaurants can struggle to create a welcoming atmosphere and experience.

To support small business restaurants with their outdoor dining, The Restaurant Strong Fund will provide grants of $5,000. To start, we will be kicking off this campaign in Boston, Massachusetts.

Boston Restaurants will be able to apply for a $5,000 grant to transform and improve their outdoor dining experiences. Grants can be used for the following items;

Our intent is to provide a much-needed boost to these restaurant recipients to set them up for success by enhancing their outdoor dining offerings.
