In response to the adverse economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cuero Development Corporation has developed a COVID-19 Rental Assistance Grant Program. This program provides grants up to $6,000 for businesses that have been significantly impacted by this pandemic and that generate sales tax.
The grant is available to all non-home-based small businesses in the City of Cuero; however, priority will be given to businesses that have frequent and/or close contact with customers. Categories of eligible small businesses include: retail (storefront), restaurant/food business; personal care products (barber shop, nail salons, spas, etc.); art galleries and performance venue merchandising; and businesses included within the hotel/motel classification as well as RV parks within the city of Cuero. Rental Assistance is paid monthly to the landlord at 50% of the lease amount up to $1,000 monthly up to a maximum of six months for future payments only.
Please refer to the application for a list of criteria businesses must meet.
