Small Business Recovery Program

The COVID-19 Small Business Recovery Program is a small business incentive program that assists owners of small businesses in Borger, Texas with basic operating expenses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program is intended to help sustain the Borger economy by addressing immediate economic injuries sustained by local businesses, and to help small businesses avoid defaulting on their obligations while they experience loss of revenue and free cash flow that would have ordinarily allowed them to cover fixed expenses. 

Each business recipient will be required to commit to resuming normal business activity, including rehiring employees to pre-crisis levels, within two (2) years. Businesses (and individual owners of those businesses) that do not meet this performance obligation will be required to repay the funds to Borger, Inc.

Every application will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Individual businesses, as well as their majority owners, will be evaluated for creditworthiness, solvency, sustained economic injury, and other factors deemed appropriate by Borger, Inc., the Borger Economic Development Corporation.

This program is our response to an urgent economic need and is therefore still taking shape. As we monitor COVID-19 and the effects on our local economy, this application and our scoring criteria will be updated to reflect any necessary changes we determine are appropriate.
