[INFORMATION POSTED AS OF APRIL 12, 2022]
Restaurants Care is once again partnering up with SoCalGas, PG&E, SDG&E, and Wells Fargo to offer relief grants and services to restaurants in our local communities. These generous funders have made it possible to assist small businesses with their financial situation.
The Resilience Fund provides cash grants of $3,000 and one year of small business support services to independent restaurants. Grants will be awarded with the focus of investing in the kitchens and crews, who play a major role in holding a restaurant together and keeping it running. This grant will go towards upgraded kitchen equipment or retention bonuses — whichever need is greater.
All California-based restaurant owners with fewer than three units/concepts and under $3 million in annual revenue (combined for all units) are eligible to apply. In 2021, 318 grants were awarded to independent restaurant owners through the Resilience Fund.
Applications for The Restaurants Care Resilience Fund will open from April 15-30, 2022. For more information on grants, eligibility criteria, and tips to complete the application, please visit www.restaurantscare.org/resilience.
