Due to volume of applicants and the fact that the grant was awarded based on a first come, first served basis, funding has originally exhausted and applications were closed. We were happy to have been granted additional funding and were able to open a second round of applications on a rolling first come, first served basis, but applications are once again closed.

The Restaurant Marketing & Recovery Grant (The RMR Grant) offered financial assistance through working capital grants of up to $2,500 to eligible applicants. Grants were used to assist with costs such as hiring/retaining staff, marketing programs, and other similar initiatives which promote stabilization within the restaurant industry and your business, within the scope of this program as outlined in the FAQs and the application document (available upon request for review, as applications are now once again closed).

The RMR Grant was administered by The Manitoba Restaurant & Foodservices Association (MRFA) with capital from Manitoba Chambers of Commerce (MCC).

The RMR Grant was opened for application submissions in a second round due to additional funding. Applications were considered on a rolling first come, first served basis and have now closed.
