    COVID-19 assistance available for small businesses and residential tenants

    Applications are now open for two assistance programs aimed at helping Bryan small businesses and Bryan residents who rent and were negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Both programs are available on a first-come, first-served basis to applicants who meet all eligibility requirements for the program for which they are applying. Anyone with questions about either program should call the City of Bryan’s Community Development office, 979.209.5175.

    Emergency Assistance Special Economic Development Grant

    Small businesses that are headquartered in Bryan and were affected by closures to slow the spread of COVID-19 may be eligible for up to $30,000 in working capital funds to create and/or retain jobs for low- to moderate-income employees through the federal Community Development Block Grant.

    The grants may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills necessary to ensure the retention of jobs.

    Tenant-based rental assistance

    Bryan residents who rent their homes may be eligible for grant funds to assist with rent, security deposits and utilities, based on household need. Funds for this program are provided through the city’s HOME Investment Partnerships Program grant through Dec. 31, 2020 through a tri-party agreement with the city, tenant and landlord.
