With the turmoil and uncertainty created but the spreading COVID-19 virus, the service industry, and the beverage industry in particular, is being hit hard. The closure of bars, restaurants, and venues means that these vital members of our community are no longer able to earn wages and take home tips. It is imperative that we as an inclusive, amazing, extended beverage industry community, make sure that our bartenders can go back to serving drinks once all of this is over.
Since every person working in hospitality is affected, grant applications are compared and prioritized based on proven need. Applicants must provide a complete and thorough application to be eligible for review. At this time a COVID-19 Relief Grant award is supplemental emergency aid of between $150-$500.
