Together with American Express, the National Trust for Historic Preservation is again offering the Backing Historic Small Restaurants Grant Program to aid restaurant recovery amid ongoing challenges related to the pandemic. Launched in 2021, last year 25 small historic restaurants across the country each received a $40,000 grant to improve, upgrade, and preserve their exterior physical spaces and online operations so they can better serve their customers, financially recover, and grow their businesses.
Our focus for 2022 was on independent small restaurants that have been in business for at least 25 years and operate in historic buildings or neighborhoods. And thousands of you responded with nominations for cozy cafes, delicious dives, and other beloved restaurants that have stood the test of time and continue to contribute to their neighborhood’s unique history.
