New Jersey restaurants can apply for $2,500 or $5,000 in funding, to pay rent or purchase cold-weather equipment, PPE and other essentials.
DoorDash, the country’s largest food delivery service, is donating $500,000 to the New Jersey Restaurant and Hospitality Association (NJRHA) to help buoy New Jersey restaurants from losses related to cold weather and especially the continuing Covid-19 pandemic.
“Supporting New Jersey small businesses has always been a priority,” said Governor Phil Murphy today, “but it has taken on new urgency in the Covid-19 environment. Programs like this help greatly in those efforts, and I commend DoorDash and the NJHRA for stepping up to provide this much-needed support for New Jersey restaurants.”
Under the DoorDash program, New Jersey restaurants will be able to apply for $2,500 or $5,000 in funding, which can be used to pay rent, purchase cold-weather equipment, PPE or other essentials. The grant is part of DoorDash’s five-year, $200-million Main Street Strong Pledge, which includes a $10-million grant program for restaurants in cities and states around the country.
