Community Impact Grants Available for Local LGBTQ-Owned and Allied Businesses

Supporting LGBTQ+ Businesses in San Antonio: A $25,000 Community Impact Grant Program for Restaurants and Cafes.

The San Antonio LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) and the Grubhub Community Fund, is offering assistance grants to local LGBTQ-owned and allied restaurants, cafes, and bars that serve food. The grants provided through the Community Impact Grant Program can range from $5,000 to $25,000 and can be used for various purposes such as supporting employee wages, upgrading infrastructure, and enhancing marketing efforts.

Luis Vazquez, the Executive Director of the San Antonio LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce, expressed his excitement about the partnership with NGLCC and Grubhub Community Fund for the third year in a row. He highlighted the significant economic contributions of LGBTQ+ owned businesses and emphasized the importance of creating a more inclusive and prosperous business environment through programs like the Community Impact Grant.

Business owners can apply for the grants until June 4. More information about the application process can be found on the San Antonio LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce’s website. This initiative aims to provide equitable access and economic opportunities for LGBTQ+ and allied businesses in the region.

The partnership with NGLCC or Grubhub is not necessary to apply for the grants. However, businesses must meet certain eligibility criteria to be considered for assistance. These requirements include being an LGBTQ+ owned or ally-owned restaurant, bar, or cafe, providing evidence of LGBTQ+ ownership or alliance, and not having received two or more NGLCC Community Impact Grants in previous years.
