Tarrant County Grants - Deadline to Apply July 1
For Tarrant County Small Businesses
(Outside of Fort Worth)
The Tarrant County Small Business Assistance Grant program is designed to provide financial assistance to very small businesses that have been adversely affected by the current COVID-19 public health emergency and most likely have found it difficult to apply and access other federal grants or loans through the SBA or traditional banks and lending institutions.
Applications must be received by July 1, 2020 at 6 p.m. For more details, please select the following:

Denton County OPEN Grants - Phase II
Denton County launched Phase II of the OPEN (Operational Plan for Economic Normalization) Grant with $20 million available through grants for businesses physically operating within Denton County. We encourage all Denton County businesses with 100 or fewer full-time employees and $15M or less in annual revenues that suffered a negative financial impact due to COVID-19 to apply for a grant. The application period will be open June 22 to July 6.
PPP Deadline: Tuesday, June 30
The deadline for SBA to approve Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan applications is Tuesday, June 30. This loan program provides loan forgiveness for retaining employees by temporarily expanding the traditional SBA 7(a) loan program.
Regional Advantage Testimonial: Jennifer Elliott
