Restaurant Stronger Grant


The Greg Hill Foundation has teamed up with Grubhub to create a new grant opportunity for restaurants through the Restaurant Strong Fund. As restaurants begin to re-open or increase their dining capacity we understand the difficulties, challenges and costs that come with that. We want to help restaurants in this transition and provide them the resources to hit the ground running as we all work to getting back to normal business.

To support Restaurant owners in their efforts to re-open and expand their dining, The Restaurant Strong Fund will be providing $5,000 grants to restaurants. The grant can cover the following items;
  • Covid-19 regulation compliance
  • PPE
  • Staff Hiring
  • Staff Training
  • Equipment Purchases
  • Inventory/Stock Purchases
These grants will be limited to restaurants that have 5 or less locations and within the following cities; Boston, Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, Los Angeles/Anaheim/Long Beach, Atlanta, San Francisco/Oakland/Berkeley, San Diego ,Washington DC, Las Vegas, Sacramento, Portland, or Seattle.
Restaurants will have the opportunity to apply for this grant by providing specific plans on how the grant will be utilized. Applications for grants will be open on Monday, April 26th. The Restaurant Strong Fund will be accepting 1000 grant applications and initial grants will be awarded to restaurants on a rolling basis starting on May 10th.
To qualify for grant assistance, a restaurant must satisfy all of the following requirements:
  • Restaurant is located in one of the cities listed above
  • Completed Application Form in one of the Participating Cities
  • 5 or less locations for the restaurant and restaurant ownership group
  • Provide a detailed plan of how they will be utilizing the grant
