SUNRISE, Fla., May 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ARF Financial today announced a $10,000 FIGHT COVID-19 Grant to support local restaurants through their COVID-19 recovery. The Financing Innovation to Guarantee a Hopeful Tomorrow (FIGHT) Grant Program will provide much needed assistance to local restaurants to help them overcome the financial impact of closures and the reduced capacity limitations required to slow the spread of COVID-19.
"As COVID-19 continues to unfold, restaurant owners are feeling the effects like no other group and need our immediate support," said Celeste Deal-Maunoir, Chief Sales Officer at ARF Financial. "As the leader in restaurant financing, we recognize that re-opening at 25% or 50% capacity will not restore restaurants to pre-COVID-19 revenue levels and many will not survive without additional assistance. We are committed to the long-term recovery of restaurateurs and will continue to explore ways we can assist in line with our mission to help all restaurants thrive."
Applications for the FIGHT COVID-19 Grant will begin on Friday, May 8th and end on Sunday, May 31st, 2020 at 11:59pm. Applicants will be asked to share their experience pre and post state-mandated lockdowns or stay-at-home orders. Startups are not eligible for the FIGHT COVID-19 Grant. Eligible restaurants must be operational for three months or longer. The winner will be announced on June 15th, 2020.
