Small Business Assistance Available from the State of Texas
3/20/2020: Governor Greg Abbott announced that the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has included the entire state of Texas in its Economic Injury Disaster Declaration and granted access to its Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program, which will provide long-term, low-interest loans to qualifying businesses across the state. The Governor’s request was driven by COVID19-related economic losses across Texas related to major event cancellations, loss of walk-in customers, depletion of stock from suppliers, and client cancellations. Governor Abbott also commented on the SBA’s rapid turnaround to a request he made by letter just three days ago. Texas small businesses who believe they may be eligible for an SBA EIDL should visit www.sba.gov/disaster where they can directly apply for assistance. The online application is the fastest method to receive a decision about loan eligibility. You can learn more on the business page for the Governor’s Office.

When the Governor declared a Declaration of Disaster, City staff took immediate action to assist the utility customers of Taylor. We have split our staff into two teams in an attempt to ensure continuity of service by allowing our Utility Billing department to remain open to accept payments. City utility customers have been assured that during this emergency, the City will not disconnect their water service for non-payment. The City is also waiving any late fees and is willing to work with customers on a payment plan to assist them in catching up on any utility bill delinquencies. These actions are in place until May 1, 2020 and may be extended if needed.
In addition, the City is waiving any fees associated with making payments via credit card. Customers can now pay their utility bills from the safety of their homes through our online and automated phone systems without any additional fees.
