Several new assistance programs will soon be available through the City of Bryan’s Community Development Department to help individuals and businesses with COVID-19 relief.
At their May 18 meeting, the Bryan City Council approved the reallocation of grant funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development toward two new programs:
- $150,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds were repurposed from homeowner housing assistance for a small business economic development grant program to provide Bryan businesses affected by the pandemic with working capital necessary to retain low- to moderate-income employees’ jobs.
- $75,000 in Home Investment Partnership Program funds were reallocated to the Tenant-Based Rental Assistance program to benefit low-income tenants.
Additionally, the City Council approved the use of supplementary CDBG CARES funding to provide an additional $364,405 for small business economic development grants and $148,459 for public service agencies to provide direct relief services to benefit low- and moderate-income households.
Application and funding details for these programs will be available approximately June 1, 2020 on the Community Development website.
