Chef’s Brigade Emergency Capital Expense Grant Guidelines
The purpose of these grants is to provide financial support to local restaurants in need of emergency funds for capital expenses or improvements.
Participating Chef’s Brigade restaurants may request funds for capital expenses. Capital expenses include the purchase of fixed assets, such as business equipment or upgrades to facilities. Generally, grants will be made as one-time awards, not for ongoing projects or activities that require ongoing grant commitment, such as equipment leasing.
Invoices for outdoor heaters purchased prior to grant application are allowed with a limit of $500 per establishment. Other prior purchases are not eligible. Expenses for perishables and alcohol are not eligible.
