Covid19 Small Business Emergency Assistance Program

BEDCo’s Emergency Assistance (EA) Round #1 grant program was very well received.

Those funds – re-purposed from BEDCo’s Promotional Activities budget – have been expended.

EA Round #2 is a loan program and taps into ‘project’ funds that must be repaid. Please read the Fact Sheet carefully. 

While these modest loans will be made to creditworthy business enterprises in Bonham, on very favorable terms, there are restrictions on how they may be spent consistent with state law.
