2.7 Million Grant For Perryton

The U.S. Department of Commerce awarded a $2.7 million grant to Perryton to support small business growth following last year’s tornado. 

The department’s Economic Development Administration announced the award to the city on Friday.

According to a news release, the grant will create the Rebuild Perryton Incubator and convert an existing building into a commercial space for businesses. The grant will be matched with $625,000 in local funds.

Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development Alejandra Castillo says “This investment in Perryton will allow businesses to grow and thrive following natural disasters, supporting a resilient economy that benefits Texans throughout the region.”

The project was made possible through the planning efforts of the Panhandle Regional Planning Commission.
