Missouri City’s Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Small Business Lease/Mortgage Assistance Program is now open and will provide grant funding of up to $15,000 for local small businesses impacted by COVID-19. 

These supplemental funds are designed to help businesses remain open and to assist owners and managers with their lease and/or mortgage payments. Applicants will be assisted on a first come, first serve basis, until all funds are accounted for or exhausted.

Interested businesses are encouraged to click the CARES Act Programs graphic below or on the top of the City website homepage to review eligibility requirements and to apply.
