FBTX ~ Dallas County will begin accepting applications Monday from businesses outside the City of Dallas in order to distribute a share of up to $90 million in federal CARES funding to businesses and residents adversely impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Dallas County program’s eligible area includes businesses and residents in Farmers Branch. Up to $90 million has been made available for emergency business assistance program, emergency housing assistance and emergency childcare. In particular, Farmers Branch businesses may be eligible for up to $50,000 with the emergency business assistance program administered by Dallas County. That application process opens Monday, July 13.
Additionally, the Farmers Branch City Council will be allocating $2.6 million from the federal CARES act to COVID-19-impacted areas of Farmers Branch.
Farmers Branch has been awarded the funding, based on population, for expenses not otherwise covered by the Dallas County program. The City Council is planning to divide the $2.6 million to support a number of local areas, including targeted industries most affected by the pandemic. The funding will also include social programs from Metrocrest Services and Woven Clinic, tourism and arts and City expenses incurred specifically as a result of COVID-19.
