The U.S. Black Chambers, Inc. (USBC) restaurant grant program helps restaurants receive funding to address business opportunities and current challenges. The fund, made possible by the Grubhub Community Fund, will support over $500,000 in grants to Black-owned restaurants and culinary-based businesses in select cities like New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago, and more.
The first initiative of its kind, this unique partnership launched to support Black-owned restaurants by giving them access to capital and resources to ensure competitiveness in a changing post COVID-19 restaurant landscape including new technology, equipment, staff incentives, and building enhancements. Grants will range from $2,500-$10,000 based on program criteria, the size of the business and need.
Restaurants in all cities are welcome to apply by March 1, 2023.
