    Tarrant County Small Business Assistance Grants


    Round 1 of the Tarrant County Small Business Assistance Grant Program is now complete and all applicants will receive notification of their eligibility or ineligibility in the coming week. In the initial round of applications, the County has disbursed over $17 million of the original $30 million designated for the program. 

    The Tarrant County Commissioners Court has approved the distribution of a second round of Small Business Assistance Grant funding and we anticipate opening this up for applications in mid-October.

    The $30 million in CARES Act funds allocated by the Commissioners Court for the Small Business Assistance Grant Program has not yet been depleted and will be available for small businesses who meet eligibility requirements and did not receive a grant award in the first round. 

    Please continue to monitor the Tarrant County website and your local city and chamber websites and social media pages for updates and information on the additional grant funding announcements. 

    Program Description


    The Tarrant County Small Business Assistance Grant program is designed to provide financial assistance to very small businesses that have been adversely affected by the current COVID-19 public health emergency and most likely have found it difficult to apply and access other federal grants or loans through the SBA or traditional banks and lending institutions. This grant program is aimed at assisting small businesses with the costs of business interruption caused by required closures. The dollar amount of individual grants will be determined by the financial information provided, the number of eligible grant applications received and the funding pool available, with no individual grant being more than $10,000. An amount of $30 million in CARES Act funds has been allocated by the Tarrant County Commissioners Court to the Small Business Assistance Grant Program for grant funding purposes.
