Great News! The Texarkana Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation, along with several other local foundations and businesses, has raised $75,000 for a program to assist small businesses in the community.

According to a press release, the COVID-19 Business Support Program will assist Chamber member businesses with less than 30 full-time employees with a grant equaling no more than $1,000. The funding can be used for personal protection equipment, utility bills, such as gas, water/sewer, electricity, internet, and phone services, or other significant business operating needs such as rent.

Ritter Communications staff present a check for $25,000 to the Texarkana Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation to assist with the COVID-19 Business Support Program.
