Introducing Raising the Bar Restaurant Recovery Fund

In an effort to support small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Raising the Bar Restaurant Recovery Fund offers reimbursement grants for up to $5,000 to eligible businesses. The program is intended to support full-service restaurants during the winter months when outdoor dining is limited and as restaurants adjust to New York State’s COVID-19 safety restrictions and new mandates.
The Raising the Bar Restaurant Recovery Fund is a partnership between New York State, Diageo Wine & Spirits, Southern Glazer Wines & Spirits and The National Development Council (NDC). Grant funding will be managed by The National Development Council (NDC).
Restaurants can apply to the Raising the Bar Restaurant Recovery Fund starting Monday, January 11, 2021.
