GHBC Foundation Small Business Grant Application

GHBC Foundation Disaster Recovery
The Greater Houston Black Chamber Foundation has set up a relief grant fund for businesses who have suffered losses due to natural disasters in Texas. The Foundation Small Business Grants program is intended to “bridge the gap” between the time a major catastrophe occurs and when a business has secured other resources such as insurance proceeds or SBA disaster loans.  This application is for entrepreneurs and small businesses that (i) have suffered damage to their business property or (ii) have suffered economic injury, as a result of the severe weather and freeze event which began February 14, 2021.  Relief grant funds are restricted to those within the Greater Houston Region for which the governor has declared a state of disaster.
