A second round of applications for small business assistance grants will open the week of Oct. 12, following approval from Tarrant County Commissioners Court on Oct. 6.

The second round of applications for the Care 4 Tarrant Small Business Assistance Grant program will expand its eligibility requirements to allow more businesses to apply for funding. Independently owned and operated franchises are now eligible for the grant, along with local businesses who missed the first application deadline, submitted an incomplete application or were denied a grant.

Applications are expected to open the week of Oct. 12 for a period of two weeks.

Business owners who previously received a grant or who are owners of more than one business that received funding in the first round will not be eligible.

The grant is open to all businesses that are physically located and operating within Tarrant County, excluding the city of Fort Worth.


Eligible businesses must have been operating and open to the public as of Jan. 1, 2020, and must show a negative financial impact when business-related deposits from April and May are compared to deposits from January and February.

The maximum amount available per business is $10,000.

More information regarding the grant will be posted on the county's Care 4 Tarrant webpage.
