Governor Abbott - Re-engaging the Texas Economy

Texans are battling a colossal challenge—an invisible enemy that has tested our lives and our livelihoods—but overcoming challenges is part of who we are as Texans.




Re-engaging the Texas Economy

We realize that Texans are battling a colossal challenge – one that has tested our lives and our livelihoods. The Governor's Economic Development & Tourism Office (EDT) staff and community partners continue to work together to provide direct assistance and resource referrals to Texas businesses to overcome this crisis.

We are also focused on recovery and the next steps to position our state and businesses for future success. Governor Greg Abbott’s press conference earlier this week announced his phased approach to strategically and carefully open the Texas economy, while still adhering to health protocols to keep Texas citizens safe – protecting Texan lives, while also ensuring their livelihoods. You can find The Governor’s Report to Open Texas HERE. It will take all of us working together to act responsibly as we re-engage the economy, while also continuing to follow all health precautions and care for our most vulnerable neighbors.

To help businesses craft their recovery strategy and navigate new federal programs, we have launched a series of small business webinars across the state to educate our small businesses on new programs, available resources and connect them with local experts. We will also increase the frequency of our Texas Business Bulletin newsletter to once a month, to ensure you have the most up-to-date information.

EDT's staff is here to help you through these challenging times, keeping you informed with the latest news, guidance and programs. For the most up-to-date information for all businesses, be sure to check in regularly on our website and follow us on social media where you can find and follow our new hashtag, #TexasBizStrong. You may also review our helpful FAQs for Texas businesses and community economic development partners. 

Thank you for the continued work you do on behalf of your communities and the Lone Star State. By working together, we can help our state's economy remain #TexasBizStrong. Please continue to stay healthy, safe and hopeful!
