Adams County rolled out a new restaurant stability program to help businesses deal with indoor dining capacity restrictions.
According to a press statement, the program offers a one-time, $10,000 grant to businesses that can demonstrate substantial loss because of the reduction and elimination of indoor dining. The link is adamscountycovid19.org/restaurant-stability-program.
Funding comes from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act.
“While the new public health restrictions are necessary to combat the recent increase in COVID-19 cases, they do put another hardship on our local restaurants, their owners, and their employees,” said Emma Pinter, Board of County Commissioners chair. “Our hope with this program is that Adams County can provide some financial relief in this time of need.”
Restaurants must be located within the borders of Adams County. They must demonstrate how the reduction or elimination of indoor dining has negatively affected the business model and they must not have a drive-through. Each restaurant must have been in public operation prior to Dec. 1.
All business owners, regardless of multiple locations, are only eligible for one grant. The grants cannot be used to pay off existing long-term debt or equity payments to business partners except rent or mortgage of physical location. Businesses cannot be in default or be actively planning default at the time of application and the funds must be used for expenses directly related to business operations. Qualifying businesses may be required to provide proof of how the money from the fund has been spent.
