DoorDash, in partnership with Hello Alice, has started a $1,000,000 Restaurant Disaster Relief Fund to provide grants to local restaurants across the United States affected by natural disasters. Small businesses are the center of local economies, yet nearly 40% of small businesses are unable to reopen following a disaster, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Disaster can occur at a moment's notice and access to capital is crucial to helping a restaurant rebuild their business following a disaster. DoorDash is proud to launch this grant opportunity as part of its ongoing five-year, $200 million Main Street Strong pledge to empower local communities.
Applications are open for the spring funding round now through June 30, 2022 at 6pm ET.
