CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce has created a program to address the ongoing need for financial assistance as the community continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the support of NEC co-op energy, Buckeye Partners, and Gulf Coast Growth Ventures, the program will administer $250 grants to awardees until all funds have been used.

Applicants must meet all three of the following requirements:

  • Employ 20 or fewer full-time or part-time employees (or equivalent) at all business locations.
  • Must have been in business prior to March 2020.
  • Annual gross revenues must not exceed more than $1,000,000 from all business activities.

Every Friday, awardees will be announced on the United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce page. Checks will be sent out the following week.
