On August 9 the Houston Equity Fund started taking applications from small business owners for the Open For Business Grant Program, that will be awarding grants ranging between $10,000 and $65,000.

The $20 million dollars in grants comes from Wells Fargo’s Open for Business Fund, a nearly $420 million national small business recovery effort with a focus on racially and ethnically diverse small business owners, who have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic.

The funding will be distributed over a three-year period towards the purchase of property, equipment, and other tangible assets, supporting economic development in underserved communities. The funding is estimated to reach more than 500 small businesses in Houston and is aimed to help business owners and non-profits with new ways to grow and increase capacity.

To qualify, an applicant’s business or 501c3 non-profit must be located in a socially vulnerable community of Houston, must consist of 50 employees or less, be a diverse-owned business, and have been established by December 31, 2021. All applications must be submitted by Tuesday, August 23 at 11:59 p.m. CST through the electronic portal link which can be found by visiting

Given the limited window of the application, we understand that small business owners often lack the time and focus on getting into the grant-writing process. As an option, The Refund Consultants provide consulting and application preparation services for the Houston Equity Fund Grant, as well as other grants of similar nature.
