You Might Qualify for $500 Grant Available to Restaurant Employees

Regulations to help stop the spread of COVID-19 have forced restaurants to cut hours, lay off employees or close for good.

The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation created the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund which will offer $500 grants to restaurant industry employees who have been impacted by COVID-19. Apply as soon as you can. The grants are first-come-first-serve to those who qualify.

Do I Qualify?

Grants will go to restaurant employees who can prove they:

  • Worked on a part- or full-time basis in the restaurant industry for at least 90 days in the past year; and
  • Have had a primary source of income in the restaurant industry for the last year; and
  • Have experienced a decrease in wages or loss of job on or after March 10, 2020; and
  • Live in the United States, an overseas U.S. military base, or any U.S. territory; and
  • Are over the age of legal majority in their U.S. state or territory.

Applications will open April 2. You can apply here. If you're able to, donate to the fund here.
