The city of Pflugerville, the Pflugerville Chamber of Commerce and the Pflugerville Community Development Corp. have partnered to launch Pflugerville Cares, a small-business grant program. The program has allocated $920,000 in available grant funding for eligible businesses that have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic, according to an Aug. 10 PCDC news release.
The program's application window will open Aug. 13 and remain available until Aug. 31 at 8 p.m., per the release. A Pflugerville Cares training webinar is planned for Aug. 12 at 10 a.m. with a recording available for those unable to attend during the allotted time.
Eligible businesses for the grant are required to be physically located and operated within Pflugerville city limits, per the release, and were operating on or before March 1. Businesses must be able to verify a 15% revenue loss due to COVID-19 and have not received funds from other COVID-19 relief programs, per the release. Once grants have been approved, funding must be dispensed by the city before Oct. 31, the release added.
“We are pleased to work with the PCDC and the Pflugerville Chamber of Commerce to create awareness of this grant program for businesses adversely impacted by COVID-19,” Mayor Victor Gonzales said in the release. “We recognize that COVID-19 has impacted our community and especially local businesses. These grants are a way for us to work together and provide financial assistance to those who need it within our business community.”
