The restaurant industry has been severely impacted by the pandemic, losing revenue, and customers due to public health related concerns, closures and restrictions. In response, Governor Hogan set aside $50 million for restaurant relief, sending approximately $8 Million to Montgomery County to aid its restaurants.
On November 17, the Montgomery County Council authorized Montgomery County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC) to administer and award grants of up to $10,000 to the following types of local businesses:
- Food trucks
- Food-serving breweries and wineries
- Locally-owned franchises
- Restaurants in hotels and arts/entertainment/recreational venues
Applications will be accepted from November 20 through December 4, 2020.
