Hurricane Harvey-affected small business owners interested in applying for a new grant program can attend an informational seminar in Victoria on Tuesday.

Texas Back in Business will host an application event during the Victoria Economic Development Corporation’s weekly Partnership meeting on Tuesday morning.

The new federally-funded program is awarding $50,000 up to $250,000 in disaster relief. Qualified Texas small business owners have until March 2 to complete a free online application.

If a business meets basic qualifications, it will be entered in a random selection process to receive a grant.

The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant for Disaster Recovery. In the state’s Hurricane Harvey CDBG-DR action plan, the Texas General Land Office allocated $100 million for an economic revitalization program to help small businesses impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
