Grant Programs and Money Saving Tips

USGB grants – Cash assistance for Bartender, server or waitstaff.  Spouses and children are also eligible.

One Fair Wage Emergency Fund – Cash assistance to restaurant workers, car service drivers, delivery workers, personal service workers, and more. (CA, CO, PA only)

Ask if your rent or mortgage payment can be deferred or skipped for a certain time period.  Many landlords and lenders are offering options and many states are not allowing evictions at this time.

Contact your Bank or Credit Union. Many are waiving fees on late or missed credit card or loan payments or offering affected borrowers the ability to defer or skip making loan payments.
