South Plains Area Governments
The SPAG CORE Relief Financing Program was launched back in September 2020, and now their initial capital investment period is nearing its end. They have almost $2 million remaining to help small businesses throughout the SPAG region, but the time is running out to do so. This program is strictly Pandemic relief financing (working capital for payroll, catch up, etc.). The EDA felt it was critical to try to provide relief financing throughout this part of Texas, and they want to do as much as they can for small businesses who have been impacted.
