Deadline for legacy business assistance extended

Tuesday, March 16, 2021 by Chad Swiatecki

The city has extended the application period for the Austin Legacy Business Relief Grant program, with submissions open until 5 p.m. Wednesday for music venues and other creative businesses seeking assistance related to the Covid-19 pandemic. Applications were originally due on March 10, but the deadline was extended because of the disruptions caused by the severe winter weather last month that cut off power and water service throughout the city for days at a time. Applicants will learn of their eligibility status on March 29, with phase one winners receiving $20,000 grants and having the ability to receive an additional $140,000 after completing a technical assistance evaluation to help them enhance their business operations. Full information for the program is available on the city’s website.
