The duo started the program last year to help SMBs hit hard by the pandemic and they want your help in finding more businesses to give away money to.
This year the Houston Texans and Amegy Bank are giving out $2,500 small business grants to help Houston area businesses in a contest they are calling the “Small Business Boost”. To enter small business owners can nominte themselves or be nominated by their patrons/customers by filling out a form on the Texans website.
In 2020 the Small Business Boost contest donated $20,000 worth of grants to 10 area small businesses including Three Brothers Bakery, The Plated Plant, and Kidtastic Playground. So far this year the program has given grants to 5 area small businesses including The Artz, Dumpling Haus, and Bellaire Shoe Hospital.
