In response to this tragedy, the Texas Black Expo, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, in partnership with Emmy® Award-winning producer, entrepreneur, and Houston native Rushion McDonald (“Steve Harvey,” “Family Feud,” “The Jamie Foxx Show,” the Neighborhood Awards, etc.), have joined forces to raise emergency micro-funding for entrepreneurs and small businesses in the affected regions that have experienced storm-related losses. Eligible applicants will receive a one-time grant of $1,000 within 48 business hours of application approval. These grants can be used for the replacement of office supplies, office furniture, or office equipment, as well as for office clean-up and minor remodeling projects.  

According to Texas Black Expo President & Founder Jerome Love, the impetus for the idea came as a result of the realization that among the many relief efforts that are taking place to help the city recover, small businesses would also require a substantial amount of assistance to rebound from the losses they have incurred as a result of the storm. “One of the key focuses of the Texas Black Expo is strengthening businesses. We realize that strong businesses are the cornerstone of strong 

communities, so it is imperative that we do all we can to help small businesses recover so that our communities can come back stronger than ever,” Love explained. This mission resounded with Rushion McDonald, who has been nationally recognized as a pioneer in supporting small business development for decades. He explains, “For the past 20 years, I have celebrated the uplifting and growth of small businesses in this country. It is the reason I launched Money Making Conversations, a show that empowers entrepreneurs and small businesses. This show can be heard via iHeartRadio Podcast and KYND Radio. Partnering with Texas Black Expo to raise funds for hurricane-damaged small businesses is an opportunity to continue my small business support.”

 The organizers are seeking to establish a fund of $100,000 to assist these small businesses, which are so vital to our communities and economy, in their recovery after the devastating losses they have suffered as a result of this historical event.

The Texas Black Expo, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, is dedicated to improving the quality of life within minority communities by strengthening businesses, inspiring youth, and building better lives. For more information about the Texas Black Expo, visit www.texasblackexpo.com.
