The Diamond City Partnership has received federal funding through the Luzerne County CARES Act to ease the financial burden of expenses associated with adjusting business operations in connection with the COVID-19 public health emergency. The Diamond City Partnership Get Your Restaurant Outdoors grant provides direct assistance to Downtown restaurants (within the Downtown Wilkes-Barre Business Improvement District) that wish to establish or expand outdoor business operations or modify indoor dining operations. These funds will cover costs associated with utilizing outdoor spaces such as sidewalks, parking lots, and patios to provide additional seating, serving, and sales areas as well as supporting safe indoor dining.
