Hempstead: Nassau County is now accepting new applications for the Restaurant Recovery Grant Program, providing a lifeline to full-service restaurants, working hard to meet the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many restaurants in Nassau County have already received a grant of either $5,000 or $10,000. The program is open to restaurants with fewer than 50 full-time employees. It’s important to note that this is a grant, not a loan – if you’re able to retain at least one low/moderate-income job at full-time status with the use of this grant, you will not have to pay it back.
“As County Executive, I will continue to do everything I can to ensure a strong recovery for small businesses, especially in our cherished downtowns. And our restaurants are the anchor of those once bustling communities. These are uncertain times but one thing I am certain of is that our business owners are innovative, and they are resilient,” said Laura Curran.
