$10K Grants: Restaurant Disaster Relief Fund

Disasters are unpredictable — but critical support shouldn’t be. The average small business loses $3,000 every day they remain closed due to a natural disaster. To help restaurants recover in times of critical need, DoorDash has partnered with Hello Alice to create the Restaurant Disaster Relief Fund. The fund supports restaurants impacted by natural disasters like fires, floods, and hurricanes, and provides relief through $10,000 grants.

Join the DoorDash Restaurant Disaster Relief Community on Hello Alice

Nearly 40% of small businesses are unable to reopen their doors following a disaster according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Through the Restaurant Disaster Relief Fund, DoorDash hopes to reduce the financial burden imposed on small businesses following a state or federally-declared natural disaster, helping keep their doors open for years to come.

Grants can be used to cover operating costs following a state or federally declared natural disaster, including rent or mortgage payments, food and beverage inventory, utilities, supplies and materials, and supplier costs. All restaurants meeting the eligibility criteria are encouraged to apply. Restaurants do not need to be on the DoorDash platform to be eligible. A partnership with DoorDash or Caviar is not required or considered.
