The City of Bryan does not regulate trick-or-treating and encourages all residents to take necessary precautions in regards to COVID-19 (such as wearing face coverings and practicing social distancing) and make decisions about Halloween celebrations that are best for your family.
As the effects of COVID-19 continue to impact our community, the cities of Bryan and College Station once again are joining forces to make funding available to qualifying local businesses.
The source of these new funds is the Public Health Reimbursement Grant Program, which is overseen by the Texas Division of Emergency Management ꟷ a state agency under The Texas A&M University System.
Beginning July 15, eligible for-profit and non-profit businesses will be able to submit an application to the city in which they are located for reimbursement of the following expenses:
- Medical expenses
- Public health expenses
- Payroll expenses for healthcare, human services, and employees whose services were substantially dedicated to mitigating or responding to the COVID-19 public health emergency
- Expenses for actions that facilitated compliance with COVID-19-related public health measures
Applications will be accepted noon on July 15 through 2 p.m. on Aug. 3 at the following links:
Expenses must have been incurred between March 1 and July 15, 2020. Documentation of expenses incurred must be included. Any remaining grant funds will be made available through a second application period later in the summer.
Questions about the application process can be directed to Bryan Department of Community Development Services, 979.209.5175; or College Station Department of Community Services, 979.764.3778.
