The cities of Bryan and College Station are joining forces to make funding available to qualifying local businesses.

The source of these new funds is the Public Health Reimbursement Grant Program, which is overseen by the Texas Division of Emergency Management, a state agency under The Texas A&M University System.

Beginning July 15, eligible for-profit and non-profit businesses will be able to submit an application to the city in which they are located for reimbursement of the following expenses:

  • Medical expenses
  • Public health expenses
  • Payroll expenses for healthcare, human services, and employees whose services were substantially dedicated to mitigating or responding to the COVID-19 public health emergency
  • Expenses for actions that facilitated compliance with COVID-19-related public health measures

Applications will be accepted noon on July 15 through 2 p.m. on Aug. 3 on the City of Bryan and City of College Station websites.

Expenses must have been incurred between March 1 and July 15, 2020 and documentation of expenses incurred must be included.

Any remaining grant funds will be made available through a second application period later in the summer.

Questions about the application process can be directed to the Bryan Department of Community Development Services at (979) 209-5175 or the College Station Department of Community Services at (979) 764-3778.
