In March, Boston-based brewery Samuel Adams partnered with The Greg Hill Foundation to raise more than $500,000 for its Restaurant Strong grant program, which offered financial support to Massachusetts service industry workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Since then, they have raised more than $2 million to give a little help to workers in 19 states, including Michigan. 

Beginning today, April 3, Michigan service industry workers can apply for a one-time $1,000 grant to help during the shutdown.

“We stand with and want to extend a toast to the restaurant workers who have had our backs for so many years, from serving our favorite beers to celebrating life’s precious moments with us,” the company said in a statement.

To qualify for grant assistance, applicants must meet the following five requirements:
