Arizona Programs

Arizona Restaurant Association Foundation Relief Fund

The Arizona Restaurant Association, through its 501c3 Education Foundation (the ARAEF) has formed a Relief Fund to activate immediate funding for restaurant workers. A maximum $500 individual grant will be available, under specific criteria, so that restaurant industry service staff (waitstaff, bartenders, bussers, line cooks, dishwashers and other hourly workers) who have suddenly found themselves without a paycheck, can breathe a little easier knowing that this immediate help can assist them to buy groceries, pay their rent, fill their prescriptions, and take care of their kids. Other Federal and State help will be coming, but the Arizona Restaurant Association Foundation funds will help get workers over this critical first hump!

ALBA is a non-profit organization established to promote the responsible sale of alcoholic beverages, to establish and maintain effective communication with the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control, to initiate, lobby for and support laws that preserve the right of all Arizona retail liquor licensees to operated legitimate and lawful businesses, and to provide innovative services to its membership.

Crescent Crown Distributing, a licensed Arizona beer and wine distributor, has graciously donated for deposit in a separate ALBA account, funds to be used to assist former employees of ALBA members who have been significantly harmed by events caused by the COVID-19 virus. With these funds, ALBA intends to assist truly deserving individuals, who worked in an ALBA hospitality establishment until the COVID-19 emergency, and who are now unemployed.

ALBA will make grants, up to $500 each, to former employees who worked up to the time of the COVID-19 emergency.
