Description

Hurricane Harvey generated long-term impact and challenges for Houston’s small business sector. The Harvey Economic Development Program (HEDP) provides support to impacted small businesses and communities through small business loans and grants. The program prioritizes microenterprises and small businesses. This program will complement existing projects that focus on providing jobs and housing assistance to communities that are most vulnerable to the long-term impact of Hurricane Harvey.

 

The HEDP’s Small Business Grant Program will offer grants to microenterprises and small businesses in order to help businesses recover from the long-term impact of Hurricane Harvey. For an applicant to be considered qualified for a small business grant, the applicant business must be within the City of Houston jurisdiction, must be a microenterprise or small business, and must meet a National Objective (most often achieved by creating a job). 

 

If your small business or microenterprise meets the eligibility requirements for the HEDP, you may qualify to receive up to $150,000 of assistance from this program.  Funding available for the HEDP is limited.  If you believe that you qualify for the HEDP, we suggest that you begin the process of completing your HEDP Application as soon as possible! Additional resources are available to assist you with your HEDP Application on our program website at https://recovery.houstontx.gov/hedp.
