Hurricane Harvey

On August 25, 2017, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in the Coastal Bend of Texas. 

The Category 4 impacted the entire Coastal Bend business community in a big way. It will take months and years before our small businesses get back to providing the outstanding goods and services we have come to know and love, but we are confident that we will rebuild, restore and recover.

To assist Coastal Bend small businesses in their recovery from Hurricane Harvey.
