Pflugerville to distribute $920,000 to small businesses for COVID relief via PfCares

Raquel Valdez Sanchez of Business & Community Leaders of Texas  presents the Pflugerville City Council with new guidelines for the second round of the city's small business grant program.

The city of Pflugerville will distribute $920,000 from a second round of American Rescue Plan Act funds to small businesses affected by COVID-19 via its PfCares small business program grant.

The City Council selected Business & Community Leaders of Texas to administer the program and approved an $80,000 contract for the service.

The second round of the program will be more flexible to allow businesses that did not have access to the first round to apply, said Business & Community Leaders representative Raquel Valdez Sanchez. Applicants will not be required to have employees and applications will be open to all businesses within city limits. Previously applications where only open to those in the city within Travis County.

Business that apply must have been affected by COVID-19 from March 3, 2021, to Dec, 31, 2024, and have operated within city limits since March 1, 2019. Business also have to show a loss of at least 25%. This is an increase from the previous round, where a loss of 15% had to be proven.
