NJRHA and DoorDash Partner to Distribute $500,000 to New Jersey restaurants
New Jersey Restaurant & Hospitality Association announced a new grant program, funded by DoorDash and administered by the New Jersey Restaurant and Hospitality Association. DoorDash is generously donating $500,000 to the NJRHA to award grants to restaurants to help them offset costs amidst cold weather and ongoing COVID-related challenges.
Restaurants will be able to apply for $2,500 or $5,000 in funding which can be used to pay rent, purchase cold-weather equipment, PPE, and more. This grant is part of DoorDash’s five-year $200 million dollar Main Street Strong Pledge, which includes $10M in grants for restaurants in cities and states around the country.
The grant application will be available on the NJRHA grant, www.njrha.org by February 1st. The grants will be awarded to independent restaurants who have five or fewer locations and can show a loss of at least 30% from 2019. The criteria is outlined on the application on the NJRHA website. Applicants do not have to be a DoorDash partner or NJRHA member.
