COVID-19 Business Information

Message From Chamber CEO

Late Friday, President Trump signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, investing $350 billion to help small businesses keep workers employed.
The "Paycheck Protection Program", provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses, to help cover payroll. Unique to the COVID-19 pandemic, the loan may be forgiven if the borrower keeps their current employees during this crisis or reinstates them afterward.
This week we'll be coordinating with local bankers to compile a list of lenders who can process the SBA loans.The number of government programs designed to assist small businesses is changing rapidly. Your Chamber is advocating on your behalf and we will update you with new legislation as it's enacted.
If you're feeling overwhelmed in this economic turn down, our SCORE Director, Tom Smith, is available for phone or ZOOM meetings, to help you navigate. Contact the Chamber at 817.573.1622 or email us, to schedule a meeting with Tom.
I know the landscape of our economy has changed rapidly. It's imperative you know that the Granbury Chamber of Commerce is here to help you walk through these unprecedented times.
Along with the Texas Association of Businesses (State Chamber) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, we will ensure Hood County's small business needs are heard by our elected officials. If you have a suggestion you'd like to reach our leaders at the City, County, State or National level, I invite you to email it to us.
