Additional CARES Act grant funding available to Loudoun restaurants on Tuesday

Loudoun Economic Development has announced an additional $250,000 in grant funding available to assist Loudoun County restaurant owners.

An additional $250,000 of CARES Act grant funding will be available on Nov. 24 to Loudoun County restaurant owners on a first-come-first-served basis, according to county officials.

Loudoun Economic Development announced that the Board of Supervisors has allocated a new “Loudoun is Ready Outdoor Seating Grant Program” to address the hospitality industry costs associated with outdoor seating, including tents, heating systems and heating fuel.

The program will open at 10 a.m. Tuesday and is designed to provide up to $5,000 in funding to approximately 50 businesses.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, and the application window will close once it becomes apparent that the funds have been awarded.

Businesses that can demonstrate the following are encouraged to apply:

1. That they are a for-profit business operating a restaurant, winery, brewery, distillery or tasting room in Loudoun County;

2. That they are permitted or approved for outdoor seating and have incurred costs since March 1 for a tent, heater and/or ongoing expenses such as heater fuel; and

3. That they have not received funding for similar expenses from any of the incorporated towns in Loudoun.
