Anaheim offers restaurant grants to ‘Take it Outdoors’

ANAHEIM, Calif. (Oct. 22, 2020) — Anaheim is offering grants to local restaurants who need help building or expanding outdoor dining space amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

All small businesses have been struggling under the restrictions and lifestyle changes this year, and restaurants have had to comply with many new regulations, including increasing outdoor dining options.

Being outside, experts have said, helps prevent the spread of the virus in combination with wearing masks and maintaining at least six feet of physical distance. That's why state guidelines allow for restaurants to reopen outdoors, in addition to some indoor capacity.

But we know not all restaurants have patios or courtyards already built out. So we're here to help.

Anaheim Restaurants can get up to $2,000 through our Restaurant Relief Grant Program to expand their outdoor dining space. This could include purchase of shade structures or umbrellas, décor, barricades or even renting tables and chairs. 

Applications are now open and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Funds are limited.

More information here. Click here to apply.

Questions? Call (714) 765-5060 or email

The grant program is part of the Anaheim Community and Economic Recovery Plan, through which we’ve provided $36 million in assistance to struggling renters, seniors, families, businesses and others amid these challenging times.
