New Restaurant Relief Program Launched!

HospitalityMaine is partnering with O’Maine Studios to raise funds for Maine restaurants struggling to reopen, rehire and restock their businesses amid the pandemic.


The new fund will provide grants — from $500 to $15,000 — to restaurant recipients randomly selected from submitted applications.

Although not everyone who applies will receive a grant, restaurant owners from all 16 counties are encouraged to apply! Funds can be used for expenses related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

HM's 2019 Chef of the Year Kerry Altiero and James Beard winner Melissa Kelly are on board. Watch the video and act below!
