In December, the city of Colleyville launched a promotional program to benefit existing businesses located along the SH 26 corridor as construction continues on the major thoroughfare.

SH 26 has been under construction for several years as the road is expanded to have three lanes in each direction with curbed medians. Construction crews are currently focusing on the center median areas from Church Street to John McCain Road, said Val Lopez, public information officer for the Texas Department of Transportation, in an email. Median work will be extended south to Brown Trail over the coming weeks.

The Colleyville Gives campaign has returned this year to support businesses that may be affected by the ongoing construction. Businesses located on SH 26 from Brown Trail to John McCain Road and collect sales tax can apply for up to $1,000 in grants to put toward an advertising campaign.

The campaign is also designed to benefit nonprofits. Businesses can make a $500 donation to a nonprofit in the area and will receive an additional $1,000 in grant money for doing so.

“The City of Colleyville is pleased to bring back the Colleyville Gives program for 2019,” Assistant City Manager Adrienne Lothery said in an email. “We have received an enthusiastic response from business owners, who really appreciate the assistance as they promote and advertise their businesses leading in to the holiday season. We love the win-win of helping our business community while also supporting charitable organizations during this special time of year.”


Businesses must submit an application and a W-9 form; if approved, they must run an advertisement by Dec. 31. The ad must contain the hashtag #ColleyvilleGives. To learn more, click here.
