The NC Hospitality Workers Relief Fund is managed through the NCRLA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) that has provided financial assistance to hospitality employees and students for more than a decade. In order to support the workers in the industry, the NC Restaurant & Lodging Association (NCRLA) Foundation has created the NC Hospitality Workers Relief Fund to administer relief for extraordinary hardship and adversity including but not limited to: lack of access to housing institutions or structures, major health conditions and cost of extraordinary health care, and general decline in the standard of living due to unemployment, underemployment, or other lack of economic opportunities. Any North Carolina restaurant, hotel, tavern, or hospitality-related business in good standing can submit a recommendation for financial assistance for any employee in need at any time. The employee must be a resident of North Carolina, work in North Carolina, and have been employed for at least 90 days by company making request. For any questions about the Workers Relief Fund, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
