The Texas Black Expo, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization have joined forces with strategic partners to raise emergency micro-funding for entrepreneurs and small businesses in the affected regions that have experienced storm-related losses. Eligible applicants will receive a one-time grant of $1,000 within 48 business hours of application approval. These grants can be used for the replacement of office supplies, office furniture, or office equipment, as well as for office clean-up and minor remodeling projects.

According to Texas Black Expo President & Founder Jerome Love, the impetus for the idea came as a result of the realization that among the many relief efforts that are taking place to help the city recover, small businesses would also require a substantial amount of assistance to rebound from the losses they have incurred as a result of the storm. “One of the key focuses of the Texas Black Expo is strengthening businesses. We realize that strong businesses are the cornerstone of strong communities, so it is imperative that we do all we can to help small businesses recover so that our communities can come back stronger than ever,” Love explained.

This mission resounded with Rushion McDonald, who has been nationally recognized as a pioneer in supporting small business development for decades. He explains, “For the past 20 years, I have celebrated the uplifting and growth of small businesses in this country. It is the reason I launched Money Making Conversations, a show that empowers entrepreneurs and small businesses.

The organizers are seeking to establish a fund of $100,000 to assist these small businesses, which are so vital to our communities and economy, in their recovery after the devastating losses they have suffered as a result of this historical event. Please donate today towards this relief fund, thank you in advance for your support.
