Fed funds to help save New York City restaurants, says de Blasio


Mayor Bill de Blasio launched a program to connect restaurants to federal relief funds, Wednesday, April 28, to provide emergency assistance for eligible restaurants and bars impacted by COVID-19.

“New York City’s restaurants have worked tirelessly to keep the lights on, keep their workers employed, and keep their neighborhoods vibrant. Now, it’s time to connect them to the support they deserve,” said de Blasio in a statement. “We can’t afford to let local restaurants fall through the cracks, and I’m proud to give every establishment the resources to access federal assistance.”
