Restaurant Strong NYC Grant 2024



Eligible Restaurants

Grants of up to $5,000 will be available to restaurants who complete the application form and meet the following criteria:

  • Must be an open restaurant that is currently operating in New York City.

  • Must have recently updated (no earlier than January 1, 2024) or will soon update kitchen equipment that aims to improve environmental sustainability, including reducing the restaurant’s carbon footprint through emissions reduction.

  • Must provide a detailed plan of how the grant will be used and how funding will help make operations more environmentally friendly

The Greg Hill Foundation’s Restaurant Strong Fund and Grubhub are pleased to announce $500,000 in grant opportunities to help NYC-based restaurants improve the environmental sustainability of their operations. The funding is made possible by the Grubhub Community Fund.

On April 26, 2024, The Restaurant Strong Fund will begin accepting applications for this grant cycle, focusing on providing funding to help support the recent and/or future updates to any kitchen equipment, particularly coal- and wood-burning ovens, that will help lower carbon emissions. Knowing that these updates can be costly for restaurants, this grant aims to alleviate some of the financial burden that small businesses may experience as they make necessary operational updates that improve environmental sustainability.

Restaurants can apply for this grant by providing specific plans of how the funding was recently used or will be utilized, in addition how the renovation and/or installation will help lower emissions.

Applications will be open from Friday, April 26, 2024 to May 31, 2024 and grant recipients will be awarded funding on a rolling basis.
