About this Program

PURPOSETo get back to business in the Lake Houston Area.

The LHA Back To Business program is focused on helping businesses who were affected by Hurricane Harvey recover and/or reopen. According to FEMA, 40 percent of small businesses never reopen following a disaster. Our goal is to significantly lower that percentage in the Lake Houston Area. We also aim to instill confidence in residents about our business community’s resiliency and encourage them to help restart our economy by using businesses in the Lake Houston Area.

TARGET BUSINESSES:

Any business in Humble, Kingwood, Atascocita, or Summer Creek negatively impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

PROGRAM FACILITATOR:

The Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce| Phone: 281-446-2128 | Media Contact: mmcgrath@lakehouston.org
