Community Impact Grant Program


Grubhub, a leading online and mobile food-ordering and delivery marketplace with the largest and most comprehensive network of restaurant partners, and the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), the business voice of the LGBTQ+ community and certifying body for LGBTQ+ owned businesses nationwide, announce the return of their partnership with the 2024 Community Impact Grant Program supporting LGBTQ+ and Allied-owned restaurants.

This year the program is back and better than ever! Grants are expected to range from $5,000 to $25,000 and funds can be used for things like updating security and security protocols, updating/purchasing new equipment, community involvement, marketing and PR services, updating digital/e-commerce presence, purchasing product, staff training programs, employee pay and/or staff incentivized wages, and maintenance/updating of current infrastructure, etc.

The Greater Houston LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce is proud to partner on this grant opportunity.  Over the past two years, the program has supported 25 local businesses and we've given away $150,000 dollars. 

The Greater Houston LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce is proud to be one of more than 55 NGLCC Affiliate Chambers helping to amplify this opportunity to support local restaurants. Any grantee that is not already a member of the Greater Houston LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce will also receive a one year membership to the Chamber for free.
