ROBUST Grant Recipients

Shop Local

Earlier this year, after recognizing that our small businesses were suffering negative financial impacts resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rowlett City Council felt strongly that the Rowlett business community needed support during this extraordinary health crisis. To answer this need, utilizing funding awarded to the City by the CARES Act, the Rowlett Ready arm of the Rowlett Community Organizations Active in Disaster developed the Rowlett Business Stimulus (ROBUST) grant to provide short-term, immediate financial aid to our local small businesses. 

Three rounds of grants totaling $595,949.51 have been awarded to our Rowlett businesses since May. Please visit our COVID-19 Community and Business Resource page to view the recipients.

Please continue to shop local and support the businesses located in YOUR community!
