NEW YORK, June 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) and Grubhub are pleased to announce their continued partnership in the Community Impact Grant Program, made possible by the Grubhub Community Fund. The program provides vital assistance to LGBTQ+-owned and allied restaurants, cafes, bars serving food, and other eating establishments nationwide. These grants, ranging from $5,000 to $15,000, will provide a much-needed financial lifeline to businesses in the LGBTQ+ community.
“This collaborative effort between the NGLCC and Grubhub highlights our commitment to fostering diversity, equity, and empowerment within the LGBTQ+ business community. By joining forces again, we aim to uplift and support local LGBTQ+-owned and allied establishments,” said NGLCC co-founder and president Justin Nelson.

The Community Impact Grant Program builds on the success of previous collaborations between the NGLCC and Grubhub. The program enables LGBTQ+-owned and allied restaurants and eating establishments to continue their operations, maintain employment, make enhancements, and serve their communities. These grants are a testament to the unwavering dedication of both organizations in promoting economic growth and resilience within the LGBTQ+ business sector.
