Restaurants in historic buildings in Northfield are encouraged to apply for the Backing Historic Small Restaurant Grant program from American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The grants will help small restaurant owners navigate supply chain issues, staffing shortages, inflation, and other crises so that their establishments’ legacies can continue.
The focus is on small or independently owned restaurants that are located in historic buildings or neighborhoods, tell an inclusive story about cuisine and community in the United States, and have been disproportionately impacted by economic challenges, disasters, or other hardships.
Submit nominations from restaurant enthusiasts as well as formal grant applications from restaurant owners. Grant applications and public nominations will be accepted until 11:59 PM ET on March 12, 2023. More information is available online.
