Maryland Relief Act 2021 – Carroll Restaurant Grant Program
Grants will be distributed based on need and employment as calculated below:
Sole Proprietors/Restaurants with nine (9) or less full-time equivalent employees, $4,000*
Restaurants with between ten (10) and fifty (50) full-time equivalent employees, $8,000*
Food Trucks / Mobile Caterers (regardless of employment), $3,000
(* – The calculation of full-time equivalent (FTE) is an employee’s scheduled hours divided by the employer’s hours for a full-time workweek. For example, an employer has a 30-hour workweek, employees who are scheduled to work 30+ hours per week are 1.0 FTE. Employees scheduled to work 15 hours per week are 0.5 FTE.)
NOTE: Due to state reporting requirements grants can not be awarded until after the application period has ended. Please expect delays.
