The Texas Resiliency Hub

The Lubbock Economic Development Alliance (LEDA), Market Lubbock, and the South Plains Association of Governments (SPAG) acted quickly, creating a revolving loan fund called Support Lubbock. They provided $2 million to the fund, allocating them to small businesses on a first-come-first-serve basis. These businesses are vital to Lubbock’s economy and the financial assistance they received from Support Lubbock acted as a stop-gap between the time when the pandemic started and when federal funds were finally available.

The Support Lubbock fund was created well before any official state or federal aid opportunities, which allowed SPAG, LEDA, and Market Lubbock to quickly alleviate capital concerns for over 50 small businesses. Funds were allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, and repayment terms included a 4% interest rate over a maximum of 5-year term.
