The Independent Restaurant Workers Relief Fund provides financial support to those who work for independent, Missouri-based restaurants.
The Kemper family foundations,helped make these grants possible with a $1 million contribution.
Independent restaurants are suffering disproportionately in the COVID-19 crisis, which is why they are awarding grants to employees of these businesses.
You may qualify for a grant
if your last place of employment was an
independently owned restaurant based in Missouri
or the Kansas counties of Johnson, Wyandotte, and Leavenworth. Eligible restaurants are those that are
part of a larger national chain or franchise. These $500 grants will be awarded on a ﬁrst-come, ﬁrst-served basis to those who meet at least one of the following criteria:
- Underemployed (reduced hours)
- Unemployed/laid off
If you or someone you know meet the above criteria, please apply or send them the grant information. To apply
