Timothy S.Y. Lam Foundation Doubles Relief Grant Fund to Support the Hospitality Community

New round of grants to specifically be allocated to those in Las Vegas impacted by the COVID-19


Due to the overwhelming response of applications for the Timothy S.Y. Lam Foundation’s $500 Hospitality Relief Grant program, the Foundation has doubled its relief grant fund to $200,000.00. This new round of funding will be exclusively offered to individuals in the Las Vegas hospitality industry that have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 global pandemic.

$100,000 in relief grants have already been distributed to hospitality workers across the country. A second round of relief grants has been approved by the board, and designated for distribution to qualified Las Vegas hospitality employees, who are among the most economically affected by this pandemic. Newly added application dates are Friday, May 15, 2020, and Friday, May 29, 2020. Final applications are reviewed by a third party not affiliated with the Foundation and qualified applicants will be selected using a lottery system.

“We are thankful for the support and interest for our first round of grants and hope that our second round of grants can continue to have a positive impact, this time specifically to those in the Las Vegas hospitality community, which is the home city for the Foundation.” said Chase Taylor Cobb, Board Treasurer for the Timothy S.Y. Lam Foundation and Regional Director of West Coast Restaurants for Neiman Marcus.
