Fair Share NYC: Restaurants

Mayor de Blasio, the NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS) Commissioner Jonnel Doris, and NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) Commissioner Anne del Castillo have launched Fair Share NYC: Restaurants, a program to connect restaurants to federal relief funds. 

The federal Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF), run by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), provides non-taxable grants to restaurants, bars and other qualifying food service businesses hit hardest by the COVID-19 crisis. Individual restaurants may qualify for up to $5 million and restaurant groups may be eligible for up to $10 million in grant funding. This grant is designed to reimburse you for any revenue your business lost between 2019 and 2020.    

Fair Share NYC: Restaurants will help eligible applicants secure these critical funds through: 

  • Weekly webinars to review the RRF grant program and prepare their application 
  • Virtual one-on-one sessions with trained counselors 
  • Information about additional programs and services that can help your business 

RRF registration and applications are now open. Anyone considering applying is urged to start organizing their application. Click here to learn more.
