  • Hurricane Harvey impacted the entire Coastal Bend business community in a big way and the business community is working together to rebuild, restore and recover our region.

    Representatives from area chambers of commerce, visitor bureaus, economic development corporations, elected officials and other special guests have joined forces to host the "Boots, Business and BBQ" fundraiser presented by AEP Texas on November 16, 2017.  The fundraiser was designed to help small businesses devastated by Hurricane Harvey to get back to normal.  The participating organizations have agreed to a distribution of event proceeds that guarantees the small businesses in the areas most impacted by Hurricane Harvey receive a fair share and that all the funds stay in the Coastal Bend.  

    The application process will be administered through area chambers of commerce.  Click here for more information, and to download the Small Business Disaster Recovery Grant Application.  The deadline to apply for support is December 8, 2017.
