$3,000 money restaurants can get with the grant

Eligible restaurants must be located in those three cities, have three stores or fewer operating currently, have generated $3 million or less of annual revenue per store in 2019 and employ 50 people or fewer per store.

Businesses can apply to get a $3,000 grant for offsetting the costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applications are open from January 27 to February 17, with selected restaurants being notified by March 1 and the money going out by early April.
