With more than $55,671.00 million dollars in grants and additional local government funding sources of $35,330.00 million dollars, the majority of the federal budget in government grants is put into the business sector every year as small businesses and large corporations are the foundation of the economic growth in Texas. There are 392,378 business establishments in the state of Texas, and they break down to the following:

If you are in the farming industry, you may be eligible to apply for small business grants as well. There are more than 247,000 farms in the state of Texas.

Starting and managing a small business in Texas is not an easy task. Over $376,647,000,000.00 US dollars are paid to employee salaries/payroll alone in the state of Texas and more than 57,810 businesses declare bankruptcy every single year. Although the federal government does not publically provide grants for starting and expanding a business, in Texas, some small business grants are given to business owners to start and grow their ventures, and grant recipients do not have to pay back the funding from government. Therefore, it makes sense to look into small business grants as one of your sources to fund your business.
