Members and Supporters,
I hope this message finds you safe and warm. This has been a week of unprecedented challenges for our City, Region and State. I know so many of you have been impacted, and to say it's such a challenging time is an understatement, to say the least.
We have been in preliminary contact with the SBA Houston District Office about the Federal Disaster Declaration. The state has asked for a major disaster declaration. Once the disaster declaration is granted, the disaster lending mechanism process typically starts shortly thereafter. With the widespread impact in the state, there may be an impact but the SBA will be working diligently to share information for businesses who need assistance. As soon as more concrete information is available, we will start sharing out with our members.
In addition, the Chamber has created a Winter Storm 2021 Resource Page for our members to access the latest information available to help businesses recover from this unprecedented winter storm. We will be updating the resource page over the coming days and weeks.
Do you have resources to support other members at this time? Contact us at the Chamber Office to let us know or post in the Member Facebook Group to share the information.
The Chamber will do everything we can to support our members during this difficult time including sharing out all available resources related to business impact and recovery. Information will be posted in the Member Facebook Group as well as sent out via email. If you need assistance, please contact us at the Chamber Office at 832-510-3002 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are all in this together.
Be safe and warm,
