La Marque Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors met via Zoom on Thursday, May 21, 2020, and approved ROUND TWO of the Emergency Business Retention Program, designed to assist La Marque business owners suffering from the loss of revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Every qualifying business operating in the city limits of La Marque, Texas, is encouraged to apply. Applications are due by noon on Tuesday, May 26, 2020.

The four-page application and supplemental forms are available for download from cityoflamarque.org. All applications and supporting documentation must be submitted no later than noon on Tuesday, May 26, 2020, by email to EDCgrants@LMEDC.com, by fax to 832-447-7668 or drop off at the La Marque City Hall drive-through window or night dropbox.  

ROUND TWO funding is available to all business owners, whether or not they participated in the first round of grant funding. ROUND TWO funding will go to qualified businesses that did not receive funding in ROUND ONE first. Should funds remain, business owners who received funding during the first round will be eligible. 

“La Marque City Council and La Marque EDC Board of Directors saw a need to open ROUND TWO of our Emergency Business Retention Program due to the length of this pandemic and the amount of time businesses have had to stay closed or have suffered financial burden due to circumstances outside their control,” said La Marque EDC Executive Director Alex Getty. “We work to attract new businesses to La Marque every day, but during this unprecedented time, our focus has shifted primarily to retaining our existing businesses. We want to help the folks who have invested in our city and opened businesses in La MarqueWe hope these grants help bridge the gap created by COVID-19.”
