The City of Irving has partnered with the Greater Irving/Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce, the Irving Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, The Study USA and the National Development Council (NDC) to help Irving small businesses access the working capital and technical assistance they need to assist with business expenses during these difficult times. This program is open to Irving businesses, including sole proprietorships, independently owned franchises and home-based businesses.

Through the City of Irving Emergency Business Assistance Grant Program (EBAP) administered by NDC, small businesses may receive financial assistance up to $50,000 in the form of a grant. The amount is based on the total of three months of working capital - payroll, lease payments, utilities, renting of equipment, loan payments for vehicles and/or real estate - plus $3,000 of restart-up capital. 

For qualified business, there are $5,000 grants for working capital based on minimal documentation, unless satisfactory additional documentation is provided showing actual incurred costs of over $5,000 and up to the $50,000 maximum. Designed for start-ups, self-employed and home-based businesses without rent or W-2 employee expenses, $5,000 maximum grants will be awarded based on verification of business existence on or before Jan. 1, 2020 and loss since March 1, 2020 due to the pandemic.

Irving businesses are invited to submit the program's pre-application to determine eligibility. Available in English and Spanish, the pre-application process is easy. If the submitter appears to be eligible, additional questions will be presented that must be completed for the pre-application to be considered. The entire process should take about 15 minutes.
