The GGRA is here to help. We continue to work with the City, the State, and our leaders in Washington DC to advocate for relief for restaurants, as well as keep our community up to date with information and resources. 
We will continue to send updates as they become available. If you have any questions, please call (415) 305-3020 or email me at, thanks! -Laurie

LISC Small Business Relief Grants
The Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), is providing grants to small businesses affected by COVID-19 across the country, especially those in underserved communities, including entrepreneurs of color, women- and veteran-owned businesses that often lack access to flexible, affordable capital.
Applications will be reviewed based on criteria designed to prioritize particularly challenged businesses, and the final grantees will be randomly selected from the top scoring applicants.
The next round of applications opens Monday, August 31st. 
You can register here to receive a reminder and stay updated about LISC's Small Business Grant Program.
