The City of Dallas has $2.7 million to give to small businesses affected by the pandemic.

Businesses in Dallas with $1.5 million or less in revenues that can demonstrate 25% loss due to the pandemic since March 2020 are qualified to receive the grants.

The maximum grant size is $15,000, and the amounts are based on three months of business expenses.

Apply online from 9 a.m. Feb. 3 through Feb. 10. All of the applications received are chosen from a lottery.

The City of Dallas Small Business Continuity Fund last year awarded 399 grants totaling more than $3.8 million, as well as 22 loans totaling $615,300. The funding comes from $8 million the city received from the federal CARES Act last year.
