The CRF’s Angel Relief Fund offers emergency assistance to Colorado hospitality employees facing an unanticipated hardship such as injury or illness requiring hospitalization or other acute care, death or catastrophic illness of an immediate family member, or disaster, such as flood, fire, or storm damage. The incident must have occurred within the past 6 months. CRF provides emergency assistance fund grants of $1,000.00.
Note: We have seen an increase in applications this year, and while we are so grateful to have helped so many people, our fund is currently depleted, so we are temporarily pausing the approval of new grants until funds are replenished.
We are keeping current applications on file and we will resume funding approved applications as soon as we can. In the meantime, please see this list of other resources for financial hardship grants.
Requirements to receive a hardship grant:
- Have a primary source of income rooted in food and beverage and are currently employed in the restaurant industry
- Live in the state of Colorado
- Encounter an emergency that’s an unexpected, non-recurring crisis.
