About TEDC and Economic Development:
Where do I find information on loans and grants?
The Texas Economic Development Council does not facilitate any loans or grants. However the Texas Economic Development & Tourism Office in the Office of the Governor does have loans and grants available for businesses and organizations for economic development purposes. Please visit their website for more information.
I am a small business owner. How do I get access to Economic Resources in my community?
Economic Development in Texas is de-centralized, which means that you will have to contact your local Economic Development Organization for assistance. You can also contact the Office of Small Business Assistance in the Texas Economic Development & Tourism Office for more information on resources and assistance.
I want to bring my business to Texas. How do I do that?
If you have a specific location or community in mind, please contact that Economic Development organization directly. For more information on doing business in Texas, please contact Samantha Brown with Team Texas.
