[ARCHIVED] DuPage Restaurant Grant Relief Nov. 18

Westmont, Illinois - Date Issued: November 18, 2020

Yesterday, the DuPage County Board authorized an additional $2.5 million in funding for the DuPage County Small Business Grant Relief Program For Restaurants and Food Establishments.  Restaurants and food service establishments in DuPage County who have less than $4 million in annual gross revenue and meet the grant criteria will be eligible to apply for COVID-19 relief funds up to $15,000 to cover business and operational expenses.  

Applications will open on Wednesday, November 18 at 8 a.m. and applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.  For information and to apply, visit their website at

Additionally, ComEd has launched a new assistance program to help small businesses who are facing financial difficulties during the COVID-19 crisis.  ComEd’s Small Business Assistance Program provides eligible small-business customers that are past due on their energy bills with a one-time grant equal to 30 percent of their total ComEd balance (up to $1,000) for a limited time.  In addition, customers whose electric service has not been disconnected can then set up their remaining balance due on a payment plan of up to six months.  For details on this program, see below.  As a reminder, ComEd’s Helping Hands Program was also launched earlier in the week to provide assistance to residential customers facing hardships. Please share this information with your businesses and residents.

Small-business customers can visit  or call 1-877-4-COMED  to learn more or apply for the Small Business Assistance Program.
