Humble Rotary Foundation’s Harvey Relief Fund made a $20,000 matching contribution to the Lake Houston Harvey Small Business Grant Program.
 
 “We knew that many of our small businesses were still struggling after Hurricane Harvey and we felt that partnering with an existing and successful program made the most sense,” Pam McNair, Harvey Relief Fund Co-chair said.
 
The Harvey Small Business Grant program has helped over 20 Lake Houston Area businesses and recently eclipsed the $100,000 mark.
 
“By partnering with organizations like Humble Rotary, Dell Foundation and the Rebuild Texas Fund, we’ve been able to help companies move forward post Harvey,” Mark Mitchell, president of the Lake Houston EDP said
 
The Harvey Small Business Grant Program was started in March of this year as a collaborative effort of the Lake Houston Economic Development Partnership, Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce, Insperity, HAAM and the Humble Economic Development Foundation.
 
“We all understood that the only way to have a meaningful impact in the small business community was to leverage our resources,” Jenna Armstrong, IOM, President and CEO of the Chamber said. “The grant program is still going strong and we continue to look for businesses in the Lake Houston Area that need help.”
 
The grant program was designed to provide funding assistance for small businesses to cover both physical and economic damage suffered as a direct result of Hurricane Harvey. This includes helping businesses replace needed capital assets as well as providing working capital to supplementing lost income due temporary closures and business inaccessibility.
