BRYAN, TX — The city of Bryan has extended a 15 percent reduction in its customer's electric costs through the end of June in addition to offering assistance for local small businesses and tenant households affected by COVID-19.

The city's utilities organization created the electric rate reduction by cutting the city's power supply adjustment by one-half. Customers with past due balances are encouraged to contact Bryan Texas Utilities to discuss how they can get current on their accounts.

Bryan-headquartered small businesses can receive assistance through the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) which offers up to $30,000 to help create or retain jobs for low-to-moderate-income employees.

Rental assistance will be available through the end of 2020 based on household needs for Bryan's tenant households. Funds are provided by the CITY's HOME Investment Partnerships Program grant fro the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Additional information on where customers can pay their electric bill and how to apply for the CDBG and the rental assistance grant can be found on the city of Bryan's website at bryantx.gov
