Support the CT Restaurant Relief Fund

We all have our favorite restaurant or bar, our favorite bartender or server….they are always there for us. NOW it’s time to be there for them. As a result of the mandatory closing and reduction of capacity, our state’s restaurants are struggling to keep the doors open. The CT Restaurant Relief Fund will provide direct grants to our restaurants in need. Learn more about the CT Restaurant Relief Fund.


To date, the CT Restaurant Relief Fund has awarded 92 $5,000 grants to restaurants across the state in thanks to our partnership with DoorDash. Recipients of the first round of CT Restaurant Relief Fund Awards were notified on March 11, 2021 by email. We thank all those who applied and hope to have more funds to be able to help more restaurants in the near future.

We are grateful to additional grants and initiatives from the Edgemer Foundation, the Goodwill of Western and Northern Connecticut, Mike Silvestri and the Goggins Challenge, Pullman & Comley and individual donations we will be able to offer limited additional grants in the near future. We continue to develop new partnerships to be able to increase our ability to help restaurants recover from this crisis.

Please consider a donation to help provide relief to those restaurants in critical need of aid. Many have filed for state and federal grants, but not all are eligible and the funds are limited.
