Lawrence, KS, September 11, 2020– The Lawrence Restaurant Association is slated to receive $1,650,000 in grant funding to support hospitality businesses in Douglas County that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19.

The total amounts available to each business will depend on the number of applicants. Funds will be distributed in two waves to ensure grants are accessible and equitable across the Douglas County Hospitality community.
